I've just installed MySQL on my Linux (from source), and it works all fine .
However, the tuto I've been using to install it, now says I've to add a command to my /etc/local.r file, to start the mysql services at the linux boot. But there's none!
Didn't I install my MySQL services the right way, is this an obsolete file not available any more on newer dist.'s, or is it on each distribution a different file? Please tell me which file I do have to edit in order to load the MySQL services at startup, thanks (I use Slackware 10.1)

it probably means /etc/rc.d/rc.local but there is a script under /etc/rc.d that starts mysql called rc.mysql, you might need to change the path in rc.mysql to where you installed mysql.

Thanks alot, I edited the rc.local file and added the command, and it all works fine now.
However, there's no rc.mysql file in that directory. I think that's because I installed MySQL from source instead of installing the standard precompiled package, but I'm not quite sure though...
