To clarify my former post - the best way to *start* the MySQL server is, of
course, simply to use the YaST runlevel editor and enable it for runlevel 5
(and any others you want).

But the point of using Rekall (or whatever) is that it does completely
insulate you from the command line. IIRC, you have to use it to create an
initial database file in MySQL, but everything else can be done in Rekall -
table creation, form design, data entry, querying, reporting - without using
any SQL at all.
