Subject:Re: hoe to shut down properly
View as plain text  
I didn't need to kill it, because my whole system (Red Hat 6.1) fell over
spectactularly soon after I posted the message. I had no option but to
reboot - luckily my filesystem was OK afterwards.

I don't know what caused the crash, I had lots of Netscape windows open
(which has locked up X before, but never crashed the system quite so
dramatically), I also had Oracle8i (definitely a candidate for instability),
and Apache which I had just compiled with MySQL _and_ Oracle support (I've
never done that before, so that may have been a problem too).

Out of interest, where should my safe_mysqld prog actually be? I used
--prefix=/usr/local/mysql when configuring, but I seem to have a safe_mysqld
prog in /usr/local/bin. I moved that one, presumably I should be using the
one in /usr/local/mysql/bin ?

thanks,

- Kev
