Hi all i have just installed debian etch following that howto but i have a problem about configuring the mysql server.Exactly when i try to run
 mysqladmin -h myhostname.mydomainname -u root password my-mysqlrootpassword

.The server is running
medic3:/home/paul555# ps -ef |grep mysql
root      2154     1  0 15:29 ?        00:00:00 /bin/sh /usr/bin/mysqld_safe
mysql     2191  2154  0 15:29 ?        00:00:00 /usr/sbin/mysqld --basedir=/usr --datadir=/var/lib/mysql --user=mysql --pid-file=/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.pid --skip-external-locking --port=3306 --socket=/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock
