Hi everyone. After a clean 8.1 install I do:
mysql_install_db
(no errors)
then /usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root password 'new-password'

/usr/bin/mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
error: 'Access denied for user: 'root@localhost' (Using password: NO)'

mysqladmin -u root -password='new-password'

or

mysqladmin -u root -p'new password'

(NB, no space between p and password)
