Subject:installation help...
View as plain text  
Ok, i need some help..

I just installed mysql as follows.

*Unzipped (or whatever) into /home/dave
*cd mysql.blahblah
*./configure --prefix=/usr/local/mysql
*make install

all that worked fine, and mysql installed to /usr/local/mysql.
but then when i ran: "scripts/mysql_install_db" i got this error:

Didn't find /usr/local/libexec/mysqld
You should do a 'make install' before executing this script

this is obviosuly because i installed (using prefix) into /usr/local/mysql

any ideas would be grateful



PS. im NOT ont he mailing list, so please send replies to me at below adress

thanks again in advance
