Question Mysql will not start via Suse 8.1

Hi all,

i don't know what 2 do anymore so i thought i should give this board a try.
I justly installed a Suse 8.1 on a SCSI system. Everything is working fine except for Mysql. I can't get the d..... thing to run. It is not my first installation and i have done a binary Mysql install about a year ago. I thought i could be able to manage but this Suse version is really getting me frustrated.

Here the messages.

If i start mysql with mysqld & i get

" Fatal Error : Please read "Security" section of the manual to find out how to run mysql as root
In mysql error log i see this

"/usr/sbin/mysqld: Can't find file './mysql/host.frm' (errno 13)"

Well, thats about it, i tried to uninstall the mysql packages and do a fresh install, but via Yast2 Suse will not uninstall them.

Any ideas.

About 2 go nutts here!!!!

Thx in advance if so!

Exactly same problem. Have you got it sorted in the last 8 months?
