Question fatal error : can not open privilege tables mysql.host


When ever i start MySQL it shuts down after few seconds, i looked into the log file and saw this line

Quote:
fatal error : can not open privilege tables MySQL.host
I tried to locate it, but couldnt find the file, so i did a fresh install of slackware, but i still get the same error

does anyone using slack here have the same problem

thanks

Did you set it up;
mysql_installdb(something like that)
restart mysql
/usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root password 'new-password'
$ mysql -u root -p
not exactly sure for slackware but may not have mysql's database installed
