Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

ha, yeah, doing the same thing today... trying to get mysql going and get rolling comments on the screen. checked log messages and see a mention of hard drive space. now i look at df -h and see root is 100% used. this is a new server and nothing installed. /usr has ~6 gig used. i just dont see where this space has gone???? but i cant start mysql till i clean this up
root@Slackbox:/# ls | xargs du -hs
du: cannot access 'proc/2183/task/2183/fd/3': No such file or directory
du: cannot access 'proc/2183/task/2183/fdinfo/3': No such file or directory

Sorry for the late answer.
My problem was in the old database files in /var/lib/mysql. I didn't really investigate what exactly was the problem for now, I just copied the whole directory to make a backup and deleted the content. (I needed to get it work quickly) After this the script worked fine.
Actually your suggestion willysr bypassed the error but I get another one which said something about mysql.proc error. At this point I was thinking that there is something wrong with the databases (tables) in /var/lib/mysql.
I bet that in upgrade instructions there are some notes about how to get the old databases to work after upgrade. My mistake was in the fact that I expected that these steps - removepkg mysql..., installpkg mysql... - going to remove everything what belongs to mysql. It didn't and it gives sense why not.
Yeah, there was a command to upgrade the mysql database manually and i did that, so i never run into that problem. I should have remembered that earlier. Sorry about that, but you can try have a look on the mysql package. I'm not in front of my computer for this week
