I installed mysql-3.23.39-pc-linux-gnu-i686.tar.gz . Even though I'm still a
newbie to linux I thought to stay away from the redhat rpm files! :)
Is this the correct version I should be using?
I ran some tests w/ mysql and it seems everything works fine (i.e. added a
test database, some tables, etc). But I just can't seem to get it to
The mysql.server autostartup script mentions something about linking
mysql.server to /etc/rc3.d/S99mysql and /etc/rc0.d/S01mysql. Do you know how
I can go about doing this?

Yeah, it means that the mysql.server file doesn't have the right
"structure" at the top to make chkconfig happy. What version of mysql
are you using? The startup script in 3.23.38 is correct. Assuming you
built it from a source tarball. You did didn't you? :) Beware of
RedHat RPMs (OK, RPMs in general)... They will lull you, 'cause they are
mostly right good. Then they will leap upon you and bite you very hard
when and where you least expect it.
