Subject:Error while running mysql_install_db on Solaris 8
View as plain text  
Please see the attached output of the bug report and an output file of the 
messages that came out in the screen on Sun Solaris 8 while running the 
mysql_install_db for MySQL version 4,1.14, 64 bit. I got the same message 
for 32 bit version also. I tried MySQL version 4,1.12, 64 bit and 32 bit 
all failed with the same message and in every case there was no log file 
in mysql/data directory.
Please check. If you need further information please let me know.

khanstation# scripts/mysql_install_db --user=mysql Installing all prepared tables ./bin/mysqld: fatal: open failed: No such file or directory Killed Installation of system tables failed! Examine the logs in ./data for more information. You can also try to start the mysqld daemon with: ../bin/mysqld --skip-grant & You can use the command line tool ../bin/mysql to connect to the mysql database and look at the grant tables: shell> ./bin/mysql -u root mysql mysql> show tables Try 'mysqld --help' if you have problems with paths. Using --log gives you a log in ./data that may be helpful. The latest information about MySQL is available on the web at Please consult the MySQL manual section: 'Problems running mysql_install_db', and the manual section that describes problems on your OS.
