Hi Bob,

Just for the record, since you didn't elaborate:

- - what version of MySQL?
- - what is the full name of the installation package file?
- - where did you get it from? (SuSE/mirror via ftp? SuSE CD/DVD?)
- - how did you install it? (rpm -???? or YaST Install & Remove Software?)
- - was there any feedback from the system when you installed it? If so,
what was that feedback?
- - do you see anything in /var/log/messages worth mentioning?

Sorry to be a PITA stickler for detail :-) but knowing all this stuff
might narrow the field of possibilities a bit.
