Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 38105
mysql won't start
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:32:53 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.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.install OS (ensure mysql packages are selected)
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).
