Subject: Installation challenges - mysqld
Description:
<I've never installed MySql before and I am having a little trouble with
the installation procedure. I have installed the binaries as described
in the manual for installation and I am able to start mysql through

$mysqld_safe --user mysql &
[root@laptop mysql]# Starting mysqld daemon with databases from
/var/lib/mysql
030812 13:24:04 mysqld ended

but you can see that the deamon has "ended" right away. This should not
happen, correct?

Then I go to connect to the server (locally) by entering in a mysqladmin
command to check the version and the output is below:

bin/mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
error: 'Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket
'/tmp/mysql.sock' (2)'
Check that mysqld is running and that the socket: '/tmp/mysql.sock'
exists!

It does not seem like the deamon is running at all when I go to check
(ps -aux | grep mysql). Any ideas. I am a little new to MySql.

Note: I have tried the latest version of MySQL and still get the same
problems but on a diff computer running the same OS (Linux RH 9.0)>
