I want to set up a local mysql server + client (preferably graphical, ie
mysqlgui) so have yum installed both perl-DBI and mysql.i386, both
apparently successfully.  However, I can't see what to do next to get
mysqld running, as it doesn't appear in the list of services
(in /etc/init.d/). Help appreciated please - is there any good specific
documentation on this anywhere?  Also, what's the current opinion/advice
on a graphical user interface for mysql please?

Andy
