I see no error here, only a warning saying that you cannot login into MySQL
specifing a passsword.
As the default instalation doesn't has password, login shoud be done without
"mysql -u root"
You even cannot have records in the user table that has the user field with
blank spaces, check that,
To get in just shutdown the server and fire it up with
and then check this situation.
