You did not get an answer because you did not follow directions in how
to post a problem report.
We don't know what kernel you are running , and what compiler you are
How did you install it?
If from sources, and assuming the mysqlprefix was /usr/local/mysql:
Make sure you have a mysql user in your /etc/password file.
chown -R mysql /usr/local/mysql
