how do i install a mysql server on mandrake 10.1. I don't got apt-get, only the urpmi command. i already installed everything i could using the control center => software management
when i run this command:
i get this
mysqladmin -u root password 'whatever'
mysqladmin: unable to change password; error: 'Access denied for user: '@localhost' to database 'mysql''
no, won't work, same error
it seems as though it's not picking up the username, since it says
[quote]'Access denied for user: '@localhost'[/qupte]
Should say "root@localhost" or something like that.... try:
mysqladmin -uroot password 'whatever'
