    How about the MySQL installation manual? Especially the part that talks about running mysql_install_db?

    If you install MySQL on Linux using RPM distributions, the server RPM runs mysql_install_db.
    Assuming this is true, refer back to the documentation to review the mysql logs and why it failed to start. Instead of the init script, you will also find directions on starting the mysqld process manually.

    I'd recommend using Yast to install it rather then trying a hand install. Yast will take care of the dependencies.
