I don't know why people have trouble with this, after every step it tells you what to do next.

Code: Select all

emerge mysql
mysql_install_db
/etc/init.d/mysql start
/usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root -h hostname password 'new-password'
/usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root password 'new-password'
rc-update add mysql default
That's it done, now when you login to mysql or when you type a mysqladmin command you need to put -p at the end of the command to tell mysql you want to enter a password.
If you keep an open mind, will your brain fall out?

it was an error associated with innobd
either i had to give
chmod 777 /tmp/
or
#skip-innodb
in /etc/mysql/my.cnf
