The above means that you should consider to sometime compile MySQL
from source! (It should however work acceptable good now)

Did you do the above as root ?
Did you check the error messages in your 'hostname'.err file.
(This is probably in the /var/lib/mysql directory)

This should work if you start mysqld as:
safe_mysqld --pid-file=/var/lib/mysql/mysqld.pid &
