Unhappy installed apt, sql is dead


I usually check both update and upgrade with apt-get. But a few weeks ago I noticed there where alot of stuff that was held back (?). So I after a few days I wanted to see if I could install them manualy. So I started with apt since that was first in line.
After the install my Mysql server will not start. All I get is "...failed".

So now Im loooost and new a little help for you ppl! Any suggestions on where to start?

Deiban is going through a major gcc upgrade at the moment which means that things are very unstable. Also xorg is now the sxerver instead of xfree86.

These things to build up before a release, and now Sarge is out all the major reworking and upgrades can begin. It will probably settle down in a few days. ( may take longer C++ ABI upgrades are difficult ).

Try reverting SQL back to a previous version.

Yes, I'v noticed. Its a bummer to be a fairly n00b and just starting to get to know the install rutines just to have them changed.

SQL is not upgraded (I think). The problem started after I installed the apt package.
Can I do a new install over the old one? And keep the db?

Tnx for your help, again, leonscape!

Yes you can, you can specify the old version of MySQL ( and/or apt ), or wait to a new version is ready to go upgrade. The APT HOWTO has the details about doing this sort of stuff.

I started to read the how-to (tnx btw!) and got some ideas. This is the result:

Code:
kanon:/# apt-get upgrade
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
The following packages have been kept back:
  apache apache-common base-config console-common console-tools cupsys cupsys-bsd cupsys-client debi
  lynx mc mount php4 php4-mysql proftpd proftpd-common samba samba-common shellutils sysvinit taskse
The following packages will be upgraded:
  mysql-server
1 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 35 not upgraded.
2 not fully installed or removed.
Need to get 3645kB of archives.
After unpacking 1241kB of additional disk space will be used.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n]
Get:1 ftp://ftp.no.debian.org stable/main mysql-server 4.0.24-10 [3645kB]

There is enough space, I just copied over a 1Gb file to the /var/lib/mysql dir with 0 problems. Deleted the file right after.

The apt-how-to is great! I allways wanted to know how to find apps with apt!

Tnx, leonscape!!!
