[MySQL] Fatal error... What the heck?


OSNN Veteran Addict
I just compiled and installed MySQL 4.1, but for some reason it won't start. I get this error:
Fatal error: Can't open privilege tables: File '/usr/share/mysql/charsets/?.conf' not found (Errcode: 2)
The tables are present and correctly chown'ed (mysql:mysql) and I modified /etc/rc.d/rc.mysqld to use the correct path for the tables. I have checked the contents of /usr/share/mysql/charsets and it seems there are all kinds of .conf files, but not ?.conf (I am not even sure if a file called ?.conf can exist :confused: ). Must I make a modification to /etc/my.cnf (which is a direct copy of my-medium.cnf from the install dir).
Help me!

To my surprise (is it suprise or surprise (with r), I keep forgetting), reinstalling did work! I only had problems with the /etc/rc.d/rc.mysqld file, but after fixing the paths, it was all done.

You know what sucks? I installed the wrong version! I installed version 4.1, but I need 4.0, because PHP can't communicate with 4.1. :mad:

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
