Description Dan Prince 2012-04-24 10:55:54 EDT
Description of problem:

Clean install of mysql-server-5.5.22-1 fails to start on Fedora 16.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

[root@nova1 ~]# rpm -qa | grep mysql

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Yum install mysql-server
2. Start MySQL Server (service mysqld start)
3. Service fails to start... check logs.
Actual results:


120424 14:43:12 [Note] Plugin 'FEDERATED' is disabled.
120424 14:43:12 InnoDB: The InnoDB memory heap is disabled
120424 14:43:12 InnoDB: Mutexes and rw_locks use GCC atomic builtins
120424 14:43:12 InnoDB: Compressed tables use zlib 1.2.5
120424 14:43:12 InnoDB: Using Linux native AIO
^G/usr/libexec/mysqld: Can't create/write to file '/tmp/ibR3SR0Q' (Errcode: 13)
120424 14:43:12  InnoDB: Error: unable to create temporary file; errno: 13
120424 14:43:12 [ERROR] Plugin 'InnoDB' init function returned error.
120424 14:43:12 [ERROR] Plugin 'InnoDB' registration as a STORAGE ENGINE failed.
120424 14:43:12 [ERROR] Unknown/unsupported storage engine: innodb
120424 14:43:12 [ERROR] Aborting

Expected results:

MySQL should startup cleanly.

Work Around:

If I Yum downgrade mysql-server, mysql, and mysql-libs I'm able to successfully startup MySQL:

yum downgrade mysql-server mysql mysql-libs

[root@login mysql]# rpm -qa | grep mysql

service mysqld start (service now starts and works correctly)

Additional info:

uname -a
Linux nova1 3.1.0-7.fc16.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Nov 1 21:10:48 UTC 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I'm running this version of MySQL on a Rackspace Cloud Server instance.

Looks like this may be somewhat of a duplicate of 782513.

If you 'yum update systemd' the latest version (5.5.22) of MySQL seems to work fine.

This is a system where there was no update since it was installed, the problem
occurred when I installed mysql. I only selectively updated systemd to see if
it would fix the problem I was having. Keeping my system up to date also have
avoided the problem but I would have thought installing mysql would update
systemd if required.

Yes, this is most probably the same issue. Closing this for now, but feel free
to reopen it if the problem persists even with the current systemd.
