Hi Everyone¨: I have Mandrake Linux 7 on my machine, I tried to install Mysql from the rpms cd of Mandrake, I did:
1)Install all the RPM that begin with MySQl...client, database, libs, etc etc
2)cd /usr/lib and type mysql_install_db the machine gave me the following message
ERROR : can´t connect to local mysql server (111) /usr/bin/mysqladmin : can´t connect to local mysql
3)when I look at /var/lib there is a /mysql directory, inside this are /mysql and /test directory and localhost.localdomain.log but there aren´t any grant tables!!!!
finally if I tried /usr/bin/ safe_mysqld & it doesn´t work
What can I do for try using mysql on my machine and use it at the same time server and client?
thank you in advance
