mysqld fails on startup

Greetings all,

I am attempting to run MySQL for the first time on a new RedHat 8 install. I get the following messages in the log on startup:

030202 18:09:27 mysqld started
/usr/libexec/mysqld: Too many parameters
/usr/libexec/mysqld Ver 3.23.52 for pc-linux-gnu on i686
Use '--help' or '--no-defaults --help' for a list of available options
030202 18:09:28 mysqld ended

As you can see, it only takes a second to decide not to run. I have not customized anything - this is a vanilla install.

Any help would be *greatly* appreciated!
