I have installed the mysql on 10rc1 x86_64.
as root in a terminal.
I can't get the server to run. I am not sure if there is something wrong with the rc1 or something I have forgot.
I ran mysql_db_connect
started mysql with mysql_safe &
then set the password as instructed in the start up page, then when I try to start mysql
with mysql -u root -p it asks for a password then attempts to start the server then halts it.
I recollect I had this problem before with suse, but cannot remember how to solve it.
Anyone, know what to check or fix to start the server?
