Cannot start mysqld


I cannot start mysqld

I have Fedora 13 32 bits


[root@ed ~]# yum install mysql mysql-devel mysql-server


Installing : krb5-devel-1.7.1-17.fc13.i686 14/21
Installing : mysql-server-5.1.55-1.fc13.i686 15/21

[root@ed ~]# /etc/init.d/mysqld start


Please report any problems with the /usr/bin/mysqlbug script!

[ OK ]
Starting mysqld: [ OK ]
touch: setting times of `/var/lock/subsys/mysqld': Bad address
[root@ed ~]#

Any ideas about how can I solve this problem?

You should put your command and output into [ code ] tag to keep formating.

I saw your MySQL starts OK but you got the problem whenever you touch a file. Try Google first.
