All I can suggest is to have a look at the appropriate manual page:


on my box. That should give you a few hints as to what is going on.

# /usr/local/libexec/mysqld --help

should show you various values that mysql is using. I don't know how
you are starting the daemon but maybe it isn't finding basedir,
datadir or something.

Try starting it with:

# /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ start

if you're not already.

Oh, and just make sure the daemon isn't already actually running
before you try and start it ;)

$ ps ax | grep mysql

Details from a kangaroo court:

Q: [Mr Milosevic]
	Is it true that they offered on that occasion to you certain
	protective measures? They told you you would be in prison for
	six months and would be tried if you don't agree to charge me
	falsely, to level false allegations against me? Is that true
	or not? 

A: [Prosecution witness]
	They spoke to me about the difficult position I was in. They
	warned me against the possible consequences and offered me an
	option in the form of accusing Milosevic, as the person who
	issued orders for those criminal offences, which would relieve
	me of liability before a criminal court.
