Hi Txchaser,

you should remove the mysql-packages with yast2 and afterwards install them again - also with yast2.

Code:
yast2
Best regards,

Olli

Hi Olli
I decided I would start all over with fresh install from begining re-install OS and everything. I have no problems following the how-to but when it coes to installing mysql I get the following error and is now the point I am at.
svr1:# chkconfig --add mysql
mysql 0 off 1 off 2n 3 on 4 off 5n 6 off
svr1:# /etc/init.d/mysql start
Creating MySQL privilege database...
Installing MySQL system tables...
OK
Filling help tables...

ect....
ect...

Support MySQL by buying support/licenses at http://shop.mysql.com
Updating MySQL privilege database...
failed
svr1:#

Yes apparmor turned off still getting the same thing also another question, now scince this is the 4th time on fresh install about to be a 5t it looks like, mysql is looking for socket in /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock when on every instal I do it is actually located in /var/lib/mysql/.protected/mysql.sock I am guessing I need to change this in /etc/my.cnf before I try to start my sql correct? Also when changing the location in my.cnf does it need to be changed in both [client] and [mysqld] ?

You can try to create a symlink from /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock to /var/lib/mysql/.protected/mysql.sock. That way you don't have to modify your my.cnf.
