Sound & MySQL(MandrakeLinux 10x)


first of all i'm using mandrake Linux 10 on a pentium 4 arch.

Situation of sound:

Ok. Now I had to reinstall Linux on my dell XPS laptop for issues I wont go into detail on. Before I upgraged again to the same version OS (not to lose to much) I had sound working fine. I had set it so I have to enable the sound service on the laptop. Now the alsa, and sound seems to be running in /etc/init.d. The sound on the lappy is physically fine. I'm considering one of the configurations of the sound has been tampered with by the upgrade to same os. However on my desktop it worked fine and the sound worked after doing an upgrade.

MySQL situation:

I have attempted to install MySQL on my Dedicated server for the phpBB2 forums and it didnt work unfortunatly. I installed the wrong version by accident and now I have the socket in use. I know what to do though. I must uninstall all traces of MySQL related packages. Now I have tried the rpm -e option in the shell. Oh and by the way the dedicated server doesnt have GUI so I was considering rpmdrake like i would use in the GUI to rid MySQL and install the right version. Could anyone give me new methods I havent tried to rid of mysql? I bacicly get the /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock 2002 error which I know what its caused by by looking at forums and google searches.

thanks a bunch,

Can't help much with the sound issue, probably. Do tou get errors when you try to play something or it seems it plays but you don't hear anything?

MySQL. First thing will be to stop it. Run
/etc/init.d/mysql stop
The the socket file should disappear, but you should also remove the old /etc/init.d/mysql script (it's probably started at boot). I don't fully understand what you have installed exactly. Was it an RPM version or something else?

I dont see any errors when running the sound on the computer. It just seems it plays. solution: Possibly uninstall/install KDE sound drivers?

For mysql:

I have installed the program via RPM. I just shut down the mysql server which didnt seem like it was running and it didnt seem like it was running anyway. I just ran drakconf and removed mysql off services which takes it off of boot.

I had first downloaded older versions of mysql packages from the evil rpm search after looking at mysql homepage which I thought was a good idea at first. I had tried installing the mysql package satisfying dependencies and other interdependencies of rpm packages and then gave up. I then relooked for an RPM package on their site and found the RPMs which I overlooked because I was rushed. So I then quickly downloaded what I thought was a good version to install which was 5.0.20 version and it didnt say development version. I installed it and relized that I kept getting this mysql sock problem. I then looked on forums and google for the error and figured out that problem. I think the real problem is the evil rpms from the rpm search. I then looked at mysql site again and finally found the RECOMMENDED version which I should of installed in the first place (STUPID ME). Now I think i'll just try deleting the stupid mysql files everywhere I see them. Or maybe I wont untill someone replies again or i'll just search again.

bye thanks,
