Did you run mysql_install_db as root? If not try to do it.  If it
doesn't help, or if you can't be a super user, try to set up the
privileges in 'mysql' -database manually.  Please, *read* from the
manual first how the privileges system works with MySQL, before trying
to do anything else!

Remember to use the actual IP -numbers instead of the host
names in the tables in database 'mysql'.

If you are still having problems, please proceed as mysql_install_db
informs you to do and send that information to us to the MySQL mailing
list (mysql@stripped):

1.) Examine the log files in the ./data -directory.
    (This is the directory where MySQL creates the databases)

2.) Start MySQL with shell> mysqld --skip-grant --log=...

3.) shell> mysql -u root mysql

Then you'll get to the mysql monitor, to the 'mysql' -database

mysql> show tables;

And continue therefrom, but read first how the privileges system works.

Please read the section 'How to report bugs or problems' from
the manual, if you need more help, it is very helpful to you and to us.
Remember to include the information from the log files to your mail!
