MySQL 5.5 Start-Up Error


With -current, I receive the following error in my log (/var/lib/mysql/*.err) when attempting to start MySQL via rc.mysqld:

[ERROR] /usr/libexec/mysqld: unknown option '--skip-locking'
120803 17:29:51 [ERROR] Aborting


Naturally, with the error, mysqld never starts ...

find your .cnf configuration and look for skip-locking and change it into skip-external-locking

I looked at the /etc/mysql directory earlier, but I totally skipped /etc/my.cnf which lies in /etc instead of /etc/mysql.

Anyway, it WORKED! Thanks!
