This is on a 9.0 machine.
To be honest - I haven't played around w/ it much. I just
saw all the emails about it and decided to give it a try.
It seems that I just can't start the server....

Windows is better for games; otherwise, you're better off
using an actual operating system.

What version of SuSE are you using? Just curious. My problems are
all with 8.0 while on the SuSE 9.0 PCs, everyting is working.

Any reason for not using rcmysql start? It seems to do a better
job with permissions. One other poster to this thread said that rcmysql
fixes some permissions and I confirmed that by wiping mysql and starting
over. In my first SOLVED post, I outlined 4 steps that I found worked
but I also found that the first 2 steps are elimated if you just start
with rcmysql after a fresh install of mysql
