XAMPP-MySQL does not start on FC5

Hello Experts,

Im trying to run XAMPP 1.4.12 version on FC5, XAMPP as such is getting started when i issue the command

[root@savi xampp]# /opt/lampp/lampp start
Starting XAMPP for Linux 1.4.12...
XAMPP: Starting Apache with SSL (and PHP5)...
XAMPP: Starting MySQL...
XAMPP: Starting ProFTPD...
XAMPP for Linux started.

But Mysql server is not getting started (others are working fine).Proof of Mysql not getting started is

root@savi xampp]# /opt/lampp/lampp stop
Stopping XAMPP for Linux 1.4.12...
XAMPP: Stopping Apache with SSL...
XAMPP: XAMPP-MySQL is not running.
XAMPP: Stopping ProFTPD...
XAMPP stopped.

What could be the problem,why is it that only mysql server does not start where as others (PHP,Apache etc) are starting properly.

I did not face this weird prob on FC4 (I used to work on FC4 before migrating to FC5).

Plz help me out ,thx in advance.

you should have a look in your mysql error log. On a standard mysql install it is usually located in /var/lib/mysql/<hostname>.err. Anything interresting you can see in there ?
