mysql looking for some file


i installed mysql on my box, but i am having a problem, which i do not know how to solve.

when I try to start the mysql daemon, it complains about not finding the file (the file is not on my drive) and exits. i dont know how to create that file. is it something that should be created automatically on startup?

thank your for any kind of input :-))

yes I did run mysql_install_db! thank you!

the problem was solved

Just got it running under Redhat 7.2

best to install EVERYTHING when installing Redhat
mysql was installed when I did an update to Redhat 7.1

login as root

Start server via:
/usr/bin/safe_mysqld --user=root &

Start client via:

enter sql...
use mysql;
create table yiyi (n1 float);
insert into yiyi values (3.14159);
select * from yiyi;

There are instructions on how to
(1) run as a user other than root
(2) start automatically on booting Linux

enter at the prompt:
>locate mysql

enter the following into the location slot of netscape for documentation

this works for Redhat 7.2

much more work to be done

I logged out as root and logged in as myself and the server was still running and the sql worked!
