Well I can actually run 'mysqladmin -u root status' without a problem but when I try to do anything else I get the error you get. I havn't been looking at it much yet.
But is there enyone that has had this problem and sorted it out?

<newb alert - apply pinchOfSalt>

It may help to know that mysql opens a port (quite a high number that I can't remember). This means you can check if it's running (and nothing else) by "nmap localhost".

MySQL is not automatically started on reboot ... I haven't looked into how to do this yet but you need to run the "./bin/safe_mysqld" script from your mysql directory to do this manually. For some reason this doesn't work from other directory locations (on my system at least).

I see that you are trying Slackware, so for this distro edit the /etc/rc.d/rc.local script and add the line "safe_mysqld". This should start it automatically after each reboot.

Personally I never liked how slack installed apache/php/sql from 8.0, so I install them myself from source. :-)
Me too, I do understand the reason for distributing them among /etc, /var, /lib .. for linux core packages (no question).

But for such additional, big software packages n those frequently released software packages, I'd prefer to have them on their own directory like kde on /opt/kde, {apply also to netscape, mozilla, ..} for easier for maintaining, upgrading. Maybe later drop them into another CD in later realese ..

Just wondering does these setup tips still apply to Slackware 9.1 or is it all setup when you install it?

everythings worked for me upto the safe_mysqld part.. i don' seem to have it on my system *fresh install, only kernel upgraded*


9.1 users have to use mysqld_safe instead of safe_mysqld
