Hi!

MySQL should be started by starting the mysqld.
What does MySQL tell you, if you do mysqld --user=root?

Please read the section 'Setting up the initial MySQL privileges'
from the manual and the sections below. You need to specify
in database 'mysql', in the tables 'user' and 'host', the users
and the machines you wish to be allowed to connect to the MySQL server.

No.

Please include more information about the installation problems
you have. Please *read* the section 'How to report bugs or problems'
from the manual.
