Mysql install problem w/ 13.37.0
 
I'm fairly new to Slackware and am trying to install/setup the default MySQL version 5.1.56.

I've created a database, but when I try to start mysql it stalls until I do a carrage return.

When I try to set a password I get
Quote:

error 2002 (hy000) can't connect to local mysql server through socket '/var/run/mysql/mysql.sock'
When I do
Code:

locate mysql.sock
nothing comes up at all.
I have found many other posts on this but none seem to deal w/ 13.37. The changelog for this release says that they changed some of the mysql directories, so fixes for other versions haven't worked.

There's trick in Slackware: the permissions are initially set wrong in the default mysql installation.

Check to be sure the steps in this brief guide have been followed: http://technotalk.tumblr.com/post/79...13-1-and-mysql And then you should be able to proceed with the normal mysql setup as root.

you can also read /etc/rc.d/rc.mysqld for instructions ;)

It seems that I am missing "rc.mysql" can't locate it anywhere.
I do have a rc.mysqld however but I'm pretty sure it's not the same thing.

I tried to continue on in case there was a typo but on the step when I try to enter a password

error: 'Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)'

Actually it worked. First time I ran the
Quote:

/usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root password yourpassword
I was just copying and pasting w/out really reading it so the password was set to 'yourpassword'.

Thanks for all your help!
