I cannot get mysql working. This is a Fedora Core 2 installation, I tried installing mysql with yum (it installed the 3.23 version, I dont want that). I tried upgrading, that did not go so well. I tried installing from the binaries, well, that didnt go to well either. So this is from the source installation.

this is the error I got whilst installing:

and here is the error I get when I try to start it:

Anyone have a take on this?

sure sounds like your previous install left tables sitting around and now you can't set up the default tables that mysql needs for your new install. I'd start over and find where your tables are hanging out /var/lib/mysql maybe? Make sure you have no tables when you install again.

one of the problems I had was I didnt know where mysql was keeping its data and files. although I had used the /usr/local prefix, there was files elsewhere. I did not know that.

Now I do, and now I have a working 5.0 installation. :)

I had to delete all files related to mysql to get 5.0 to work correctly.

try using following command

/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql_install_db --use=mysql --datadir=/usr/local/mysql/data


i think it should solve your problem.....
