Description tmanning 2001-02-03 10:51:12 UTC
I've tried to install mysql with the updated binaries from the redhat 
updates site, but when I try to run /usr/bin/safe_mysql, I get the 
following errors (here is a log of what I've done):

[root@torok rpms]# ls
mysql-3.23.32-1.7.i386.rpm         php-4.0.4pl1-3.i386.rpm
mysql-devel-3.23.32-1.7.i386.rpm   php-mysql-4.0.4pl1-3.i386.rpm
mysql-server-3.23.32-1.7.i386.rpm  upgradelist1.txt
[root@torok rpms]# rpm -Uvh mysql-*.rpm
mysql

To start mysqld at boot time you have to copy support-files/mysql.server
to the right place for your system

PLEASE REMEMBER TO SET A PASSWORD FOR THE MySQL root USER !
This is done with:
/usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root -p password 'new-password'
/usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root -h torok.homeip.net -p password 'new-password'
See the manual for more instructions.

Please report any problems with the /usr/bin/mysqlbug script!

[root@torok rpms]# /usr/bin/safe_mysqld
Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /var/lib/mysql
010202 20:50:14  mysqld ended

[root@torok rpms]# ps -A | grep mysql
[root@torok rpms]#

What's going on? Anyone know?  The rpm script doesn't seem to set up 
anything for you, and the mysql server won't run. I remember I had this 
problem on another RedHat system before, but I don't remember if I ever 
got it working.

This is not the way you're supposed to use it... remove the contents of your
/var/lib/mysql and start it the supported way: "service mysqld start" (as root)
