runlevel setting on default rpm is wrong (in my opinion)

We were affected by the power outage last week and I think people should
be aware - I'm not sure if it's fixed (I'm virtually certain it is not),
but the default rpm install of 4.0.12 has mysql starting up in runlevel
4 only. When our power was restored, RedHat went to runlevel 3 and
mysql never started on its own.

To find out if you are affected run:

/sbin/chkconfig --list mysql

Then, run:


If chkconfig shows the 3:off and runlevel shows N 3, then mysql will not
start on its own. This is probably because I don't have X running by
default on the DB machine. I consider this a good thing.

To rectify the situation:

/sbin/chkconfig --level 3 mysql on
