Actually i meet two question when i installed the MySQL on SGI IRIX6.4 and FreeBSD3.2.
The following is these:
1.On SGI O200 IRIX6.4
After installed,skip some warning,i run /bin/mysql_install_db,the system display:
*******************
# ./mysql_install_db
Creating db table
Creating host table
Creating user table
Creating func table
Creating tables_priv table
Creating columns_priv table
./mysql_install_db[238]: 23314 Memory fault(coredump)
Installation of grant tables failed!

*********************
Whether i run ./configure --option(difference some arguments) every time,
the system's message is the same.I don't know why and i use gcc2.95.2.
These are not some host,user,func etc. tables in DB mysql.

------------------------------------------------------
2.On PC FreeBSD 3.2
I installed MySQL every time,run ./mysql_install_db ,the system is correct,but
run ./safe_mysqld or some to starup server,the system display don't find the mysql.sock file in set path directory.
The system display:

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

I saw the manaul about security according the system prompt ,but i have no way to try it the cause.
The mysqld.sock is not there.After i installed it evrey time,i didn't see it.
You think the mysql.sock is danymic created,Why is not?
I don't know where it go.


My two servers are not successful,i am URGENT.


I hope someone gives me some advice.
