    problem with installation of MySQL 5


    Hi linux users,

    I've a problem in installing my MySQL 5,
    could someone help me please?

    I used the terminal to do that :
    Code:
    marwa_ubuntu:~$ sudo su
    [sudo] password for marwa: 
    root_ubuntu:/home/marwa# apt-get install mysql-server mysql-client
    I was asked to provide a password for the mysql root, just after that I had this:
    Code:
    Setting up mysql-cluster-client-5.1 (7.1.9a-0ubuntu2) ...
    Setting up mysql-cluster-server-5.1 (7.1.9a-0ubuntu2) ...
     * Stopping MySQL database server mysqld                                [ OK ] 
    chown: cannot access `/var/run/mysqld': No such file or directory
     * Starting MySQL database server mysqld                                 [ OK ] 
    /etc/init.d/mysql: line 116: /etc/mysql/debian-start: No such file or directory
    invoke-rc.d: initscript mysql, action "start" failed.
    could someone help me please

    when you removed the packages last time, you only removed them, not purged them, and then you deleted the config files by hand. So dpkg thinks you don't want a default config file (because you deleted it), so it doesn't install a new one, and MySQL has a cry.

    Purge all mysql-related packages and try again.
