Upgrade from RH9 to FC1 with yum killed mysqld


I upgraded from RedHat 9 to Fedora Core 1 using yum.
After the upgrade, to my suprise, /etc/init.d/mysqld was missing. It was there before because I was running mysqld daily.
So tried
yum install mysql
But it says mysql is already installed and is the most recent version.
The mysql version I had before upgrading was installed from source .tar.gz and was version 4.0.16
I have even tried re-installing from source but it isn't working properly.
Tried copying a mysqld to go in /etc/init.d/mysqld from another machine (running redhat) into my /etc/init.d but doesn't work right (not suprisingly)

Any advice?
Could someone post the mysqld file they have in their Fedora Core 1 distro here?

I had the same trouble. Fedora Core 2. Restoring a crashed RH 7.2. Used yum to install MySQL but could not get mysqld to start (file wasn't there). I messed with it for a few hours, even used the RPMs on the MySQL site (worked fine). I wanted a yum updateable version, so i googled and found your post

Anyway, more messing led me to find what a n00b i am (and i'm pointing my finger at you too!). Try this one:

yum -y install mysql-server

service mysqld start

d'oh! Needed the other package... You'd think that would fall under the realm of "dependency" for the "mysql" package.
