Description of problem:
can't start mysql server, using /etc/init.d/mysqld nor /usr/bin/safe_mysqld nor
/usr/bin/mysql* scripts. also can't choose to have mysql server automatically
start at startup w/ 'setup'.
was fine until prior to RHEL 3 RC (was fine 'til RHEL 3 beta), and when do 'rpm
-qa | grep mysql' mysql-server and few other packages are missing as can see below:
rhel 2.1 list:
> rhel 3 rc list:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.install an RHEL ES 3 RC on a clean machine using CD.(was on Sun's LX50)
2.type 'mysql' at the prompt to see if the local mysql server already is
running. it didn't.
3. start looking up /etc/init.d(or /etc/rc.d/init.d) or /usr/bin or to locate
the mysql server startup scripts. they were missing.
4. do 'rpm -qa | grep mysql' and compare the list w/ RHEL ES 3 beta (& earlier)
Actual Results: mysql didn't start, and scripts were missing at /etc/init.d and
when doing 'rpm -qa | grep mysql' mysql-server, php-mysql, mod_auth_mysql
packages were missing
Expected Results: mysql wouldn't start. go to /etc/init.d and /usr/bin to
locate the server invocating scripts to run and get the mysql started.
Actually, this is working as designed. The server packages for MySQL and
PostgreSQL will no longer be in the base. RHEL 3 RC only contains the client
side of the database packages.
