I have Fedora Core 3 kernel 2.6.10-1.770_FC3smp
It is a dual Xenon PIII server.
I am trying to install MySQL 4.0.24 as I usually do:
- There are no other mysql servers present, no 3.x as I did not install it.
- I run rpm -ivh MySQL-client-4.0.24-0.i386.rpm
- I run rpm -ivh MySQL-server-4.0.24-0.i386.rpm
It installs the server
Then I try to run MySQL but it does not run. Instead I have a .err file
under /var/lib/mysql saying mysqld started and mysqld ended.
I have done so many MySQL installs before and so I cannot understand why
I cannot install it now on this server.
The tables are not created not even if I run mysql_install_db.
Is there any dependency that is missing? Any necessary library?
