Subject:Re: MySQL 4.0.13 has been released
View as plain text  
Hi,

I've downloaded this version of MySQL for Linux, and following carefully 
the instructions in INSTALL-BINARY, have found this definitelly does not 
work.  The instuctions:

      shell> groupadd mysql
      shell> useradd -g mysql mysql
      shell> cd /usr/local
      shell> gunzip < /path/to/mysql-VERSION-OS.tar.gz | tar xvf -
      shell> ln -s full-path-to-mysql-VERSION-OS mysql
      shell> cd mysql
      shell> scripts/mysql_install_db
      shell> chown -R root  .
      shell> chown -R mysql data
      shell> chgrp -R mysql .
      shell> bin/safe_mysqld --user=mysql &

Complete, but then running the final deamon gives:

touch: creating `/var/lib/mysql/mysqld.log': No such file or directory
chown: getting attributes of `/var/lib/mysql/mysqld.log': No such file 
or directory
Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /usr/local/mysql/data
bin/safe_mysqld: /var/lib/mysql/mysqld.log: No such file or directory
bin/safe_mysqld: /var/lib/mysql/mysqld.log: No such file or directory
tee: /var/lib/mysql/mysqld.log: No such file or directory
030522 15:29:46  mysqld ended
tee: /var/lib/mysql/mysqld.log: No such file or directory

[1]+  Exit 1                  bin/safe_mysqld --user=mysql


Looking at my system, the install has not created /var/lib/mysql, or in 
fact created any *mysql* file outside /usr/local/mysql.

Can you please tell me where I am going wrong?

Thanks.

Ben
