    mysqld(_safe) --user=id not working...


    NM - I got it working.

    I am trying to set up a chrooted mysql server. Whenever I try:
    Code:
    chroot /chroot /.../mysqld_safe --user=id
    I get:
    Code:
    chown: `id': invalid user
    and it shuts down

    It looks like it can't find passwd, etc, files, but they are there, w/ permissions set correctly.

    I can run the server non-chrooted (as --user-id) just fine.

    any ideas?
