I installed the package mysql-server and MySQL Workbench as well onto FC16. I find that Workbench will connect to localhost easily however when I try to use the "Server Administration" Tools I get this error:
"/etc/init.d/mysqld start is invalid"
I was wondering if this is perhaps a permissions issue with Workbench not being able to start mysqld as I am not able to really log in as root. Is there a way to start Worbench with elevated permissions through the GUI somehow? Is su - and then running Worbench my only way to troubleshoot? Has anyone experienced this error before?
