So I'm trying to set up mysql. I had the daemon selected for the initial slack install but whenever I boot it just dies saying "mysqld ended" and some time I believe too. I'm trying to follow the directions in /etc/rc.d/rc.mysqld. All goes well up to the point where I have to change to the mysql user. But anyway heres exactly what happens:
#su - mysql
/dev/pts/2: Operation not permitted
No asking for a user password no nothing. Any Ideas of what to do? Would it be easier to fix the configuration or just remove the slack package and grab the newest from mysql's web site.
