I might have it fixed! I tried /home/qsys/mysql-5.1.32/libexec/mysqld and I
/home/qsys/mysql-5.1.32/libexec/mysqld: Table 'mysql.plugin' doesn't exist
090510 0:19:54 [ERROR] Can't open the mysql.plugin table. Please run
mysql_upgrade to create it.
090510 0:19:54 [ERROR] Fatal error: Can't open and lock privilege tables:
Table 'mysql.host' doesn't exist
From reading around I tried running
and now I get
090510 0:32:38 [Note] Event Scheduler: Loaded 0 events
090510 0:32:38 [Note] /home/qsys/mysql-5.1.32/libexec/mysqld: ready for
Version: '5.1.32' socket: '/home/qsys/mysql-5.1.32/mysql.sock' port: 3305
I would suggest that the developers team might change the error messages
