ArchLinux + mySQL


I seem to be having problems with mySQL! I have installed the daemon and clients from the ArchLinux repositories, however when I start mysql from /etc/rc.d it doesn't actually start (even though it claims to have stated)!

To make matters worse, nothing is appended in mysql.log - it's totally blank.

I'm rather confused that it's not working on my VDS, yet perfectly on my workstation (which runs ArchLinux too).

Any ideas?
