    Slackware comes with MySQL already installed, but there are a couple of minor configuration steps that should be taken before starting it with /etc/rc.d/rc.mysqld.

    This is an excerpt from /etc/rc.d/rc.mysqld which explains it:

    # Before you can run MySQL, you must have a database. To install an initial
    # database, do this as root:
    # su - mysql
    # mysql_install_db
    # Note that step one is becoming the mysql user. It's important to do this
    # before making any changes to the database, or mysqld won't be able to write
    # to it later (this can be fixed with 'chown -R mysql.mysql /var/lib/mysql').

    Make sure you read through rc.mysqld.
