Hi

i tried /etc/init.d/rc.d/mysqld start
mysqld does not exist on the server.

no /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock
no /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.pid
no /var/log/mysqld.log

this is a clean install from CentOS DVD iso.

i tried the mysqld script from my FC3 install and got the following

/etc/rc.d/init.d/mysqld: line 11:
: command not found
/etc/rc.d/init.d/mysqld: line 14:
: command not found
/etc/rc.d/init.d/mysqld: line 17:
: command not found
/etc/rc.d/init.d/mysqld: line 20:
: command not found
/etc/rc.d/init.d/mysqld: line 22:
: command not found
/etc/rc.d/init.d/mysqld: line 63:
: command not found
/etc/rc.d/init.d/mysqld: line 82:
: command not found
/etc/rc.d/init.d/mysqld: line 86:
: command not found
chown: `mysql:mysql': invalid user
Initializing MySQL database:  /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions: line 498: 
/usr/bin/mysql_install_db: No such file or directory
[FAILED]
chown: `mysql:mysql': invalid user
/etc/rc.d/init.d/mysqld: line 108:
: command not found

I get the feeling i need use yum to get some more mysql packages. big clue 
is previously user:group mysql:mysql are set-up by an rpm.

rpm -qa | grep mysql
mysql-5.0.45-7.el5
is installed

the DVD has devel and server rpm's which i think as a minimum need to be 
installed.
