Description Morgan Christiansson 2000-10-22 23:35:34 EDT
change --log=/var/log/mysqld.log to --err-log=/var/log/mysqld.log in
/etc/rc.d/init.d/mysqld to make /var/log/mysqld.log an error log instead of
a query log.

Comment 2 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-10-23 15:02:48 EDT
Reverted. Mysql doesn't seem to support this - take a look at the options from
Comment 3 Morgan Christiansson 2000-10-23 17:14:52 EDT
It seems like safe_mysqld script supports --err-log but when starting the mysqld
daemon it also passess $@ as arguments, which is all arguments to the
safe_mysqld script

the mysqld daemon does not support the --err-log option and therefore an error
is generated.

Suggested fix:
on line 46 in /usr/bin/safe_mysqld, change

i think this is the easiest way to fix this without messing around with the
script too much

or using the my_print_defaults program but it doesn't seem to work as it should
from the safe_mysqld script

seems kinda messy that safe_mysqld script, dont ya think?

maybe a cleaner reinplementation of it in the /etc/rc.d/init.d/mysqld script
would be nice? or just a cleanup

but on the other hand this might be the work of the mysql development team?
