View Full Version : MySql questions

05-19-2007, 05:28 AM
First of all, i installed knoppix 5.1.1 CD to my hdd and the mysql packages show that they are installed. from looking at the change log, and the mysql directory itself, i think that the mysql packages on my system are incomplete. and if they are, is it possible to install missing packages that got left off of the CD onto my hdd from the knoppix dvd?

thanks for anyhelp
i deleted the orgional package install of mysql and reinstalled with kpackage mangager after i ran apt-get update, so now i have mysql 5 but i am still not able to start the mysql server. mysql cannot find the socket and mysql still seems to be incomplete

thanks for any help

You probably have just the MySQL-Client... not the MySQL-Server. You need to apt-get that file (and the dependancies) or use synaptic to get them. I am using the "testing" versions of all the .deb files, so it naturally updated the MySQL-Client as well for me. Hope this helps.
