You have to first run the script scripts/mysql_install_db.
This means, that you have to go to the directory above the file 'mysql_install_db'.
In this directory you find a subdirectory named 'scripts'.
In this subdirectory is the file 'mysql_install_db' located.
The short writing for file in relative subdirectory under UNIX/LINUX is:
The short writing for an absolute subdirectory under UNIX/LINUX is:
At the commandline in the directory above 'mysql_install_db' issue:
After successfully using this script, you can change the password of the mysql root user
to 'toto' by issue the following command from the commandline:
# /usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root password toto
This will encrypt 'toto' and insert the encrypted password into the mysql priviledge
For starting mysqld at boot time you have to copy the file named 'mysql.server' which you
find under subdirectory named 'support-files' to an directory where all startup scripts
This location is OS specific, so you have to read the man pages of RH.
Sorry don't know RH, but on most UNIX/LINUX OS it is something like /etc/rc2.d
Hope this helps
