Mysql does not autostart though I have added mysql to 'insserv / rc update'

Running Debian Wheezy latest stable.

MySQL will not autostart uppon booting. It does work when I 'service mysql start' from terminal. MySQL has its own partition on a secondary harddrive and Mysql was installed through apt, not during OS-install. The configuration of mysql is correct, when it's running I can read and modify databases.

I have added 'insserv mysql' to make it start up on boot. I have checked to see if it was added by using sysv-rc-conf. MySQL has ticked boxes on values; 2,3,4,5

I don't see what is wrong with these settings?

Nevermind: Disk needed to be automounted, now it works

Maybe you could mark this as 'solved'.
