mysql rpm install: Didn't find /usr/libexec/mysqld

i'm trying to install slooze on my apache webserver using the mysql option. when i try to install the mysql-3.23.54a-3.72.i386.rpm for redhat 7.2 i get no error messages. when i try to initialize the grant tables using
i get the following error message
# /usr/bin/mysql_install_db
Didn't find /usr/libexec/mysqld
You should do a 'make install' before executing this script

i suspect that the problem is associatied with a separate install of mysql that came packaged with ezpublish 2.7. does anyone have any ideas on how to solve this problem?

most mysql rpm installed are split into a number of files e.g. mysql-server mysql and mysql-client afaik. make sure you're installing the right ones, assuming that you want this. how does this other version come into the equation?

I guess i assume that this is a dependency issue. i thought that the other install of mysql (which was part of a custom package by ezpublish) might fake out the rpm i'm installing by showing a dependency as being fulfilled but putting the dependency "libexec" in an unexpected place (the ezpublish puts every thing under /opt.

I guess the question i have is why am i getting this error? The rpm i installed said that it included the basic server/client install. it seems i'm missing something, however, when i try to initialize the grant tables, because i get the persistent error message (even though the install otherwise looks complete). Are you suggesting that I am missing ? Would that explain the error?

The rpm says



bash >= 2.0
