Subject:4.1.1 alpha and mysql_install_db grant tables issue
View as plain text  
The mysql_install_db script shipped with 4.1.1-alpha seems to leave
the mysql/* (user,host,etc.) tables owned root.root on my Debian
system; this makes mysqld fail to start after the grant tables are

It looks like this is because mysql_install_db calls mysqld with
--bootstrap and *without* --user=mysql.  mysql_install_db already
takes a --user argument but doesn't use it; perhaps it should be added
to line 208?
