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
# 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.
is that all that i would hav to do
i am not able to work my lan card on slackware there fore cant access net there
do hav a solution for that too i hav an onboard lan card and command netconfig does not work
