    New install of mysql by using the "Add/Remove" software and all seems to go normally. It figures dependenciesl, does everything one would expect. But trying to start gives the same issue as thread above. I did a 'find /' on rcmysql and nothing. I suspect there is a mysqld that should be started in init but there is nothing in any of the /etc/rc.d/rc. whatever sections.

    Could anyone help out this poor near newbie find the missing demaon (if that's what it is) and tell me how to set them up for automagically starting with boot? Thanks in advance.


    PS: This install of FC6 is running under parallels on an IMac Core 2 Duo if that makes any difference, although I shouldn't think so. TIA.
