and FC3 Notes
I was going by those FC3 notes, but it didn't even start the mysqld service. I am not sure whether I did somewhere a mistake while I was playing around to configure it by myself. But I know I removed something, this was what i did before trying the instructions on your page :
/usr > rpm -e mysql-3.23.58-16
and it removed that package. Now when I type :
/usr > rpm -qa | grep mysql
As you see mysql-3.23.58-16 is not there anymore. Do you think that's causing the problem?
When I type :
/usr > mysql -u root
ERROR 2002: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (111)
So, I can't apply the configuration instructions on your page...
