mysql gets installed by default when u install a distro.

1.) go to the terminal
2.) write "service mysqld start". if mysql is installed it will start the service otherwise it will inform u that there is no such package. in that case u can get one from
3.) then write "mysql"

and the mysql will start in terminal..

u can make mysql start every time u boot you computer by checking mysqld option in serviceconf. just write serviceconf on terminal and an interface will come up. u can also check the exsistence of mysql in your system thru serviceconf.
