Proplems start MySQL server...

When I issue the command to start the MySQL server is say's it's start the mysql daemon and just sits there. I have to press the ENTER key and I'm back at the shell prompt. The server is then running. Problem is, I want to run the mySQL server automatically when the machine boots and this need to press the ENTER key causes the server to sit there.

/usr/local/mysql/share/mysql/mysql.server start

Any ideas why I have to press ENTER?

Thanks in advance,

It might work if you edit /etc/rc.d/rc.local

and add the line:

/usr/local/mysql/share/mysql/mysql.server start , or whatever the path is to the server start executable.

rc.local is the last thing to be run when slack boots up.
