Description Ian Mitchell 2001-04-27 15:18:58 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (Win95; U)

Recommended installation procedures involve running mysql_install_db to create the mysql database.

I followed those steps and I can varify that /var/mysql/mysql/user.frm does exist. However mysqld fails on startup.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.install OS (ensure mysql packages are selected)
3./etc/init.d/mysqld start 

Actual Results:  Excerpt from /var/log/mysqld.log

010427 13:15:38  mysqld started
010427 13:15:39  /usr/libexec/mysqld: Can't find file: './mysql/host.frm' (errno: 13)
010427 13:15:39  mysqld ended

Expected Results:  mysqld to start successfully

No, you're not supposed to run install_mysql_db
 on your own (the init script does that, if necessary).
