/etc/init.d/mysql restart

gives...

/etc/init.d/mysql: line 52: 26503 Segmentation fault grep -q ^expire.logs.days $CONF

At this point i think i need to examine the basics. I am on site with the machine today so i am going to run the cd based memory test. If this is the fault it's no problem, the mchine is pretty old and i have a ton of spare memory hanging about.

I still have no idea how to perform a disk check except restart many times (30 i think!)

I also still need a way to verify all the packages. I am guessing this is part of the fault, since faulty memory of a faulty disk could easily result in a damaged package download (although i am not sure when apt does checksum checks...)

I will post again after the memory test, but in the mean time, anyone got any other thoughts?

Question: If i were to remove mysql-server-5.0, and then reinstall, will me previous database data still be present?

Thanks in advance!
