    This is really a Linux question, but I'm running mySQL on my Linux box, and I want to make it start automatically when the computer starts. I'm running Red Hat 6.1 with GNOME.

    Are you familiar with how programs get started on boot?

    I'm not a sysadmin but I've had to do these things. Look here:


    You should see a bunch of files that start with S and K ... the names pretty much indicate what happens. Apparently the numbers have no meaning.

    When you built MySQL there should have been a script that you could put in the directory above. Look for that. If you used rpm then that script should have been placed in the above directory.
