Hi !!!

I steal am receiving:

 configure --without-server --prefix=/usr/local/mysql

NOTE: This is a MySQL binary distribution. It's ready to run, you don't

need to configure it!


To help you a bit, I am now going to create the needed MySQL databases

and start the MySQL server for you.  If you run into any trouble, please

consult the MySQL manual, that you can find in the Docs directory.


Installing all prepared tables


To start mysqld at boot time you have to copy support-files/mysql.server

to the right place for your system



This is done with:

./bin/mysqladmin -u root password 'new-password'

./bin/mysqladmin -u root -h sensor-Jr-lan password 'new-password'

See the manual for more instructions.


NOTE:  If you are upgrading from a MySQL <= 3.22.10 you should run

the ./bin/mysql_fix_privilege_tables. Otherwise you will not be

able to use the new GRANT command!


You can start the MySQL daemon with:

cd . ; ./bin/mysqld_safe &


You can test the MySQL daemon with the benchmarks in the 'sql-bench'

cd sql-bench ; perl run-all-tests


Please report any problems with the ./bin/mysqlbug script!


The latest information about MySQL is available on the web at


Support MySQL by buying support/licenses at https://order.mysql.com

Starting the mysqld server.  You can test that it is up and running

with the command:

./bin/mysqladmin version

[root at ...12397... mysql-standard-4.1.1-alpha-pc-linux-i686]# Starting
mysqld daemon with databases from

040908 22:17:58  mysqld ended

I did exactliiy as in the menual in snort site sayd regarding:

Set MySQL to start automatically.
Copy the file "mysql.server" from the support-files subfolder (it is under
the source for
mysql. If you downloaded everything to /root/snortinstall, then the path
will be
/root/snortinstall/mysql-4.0.15a/support- files) to the /etc/init.d folder
and call it mysql
(the command to copy it from the support- files directory is "cp
Use the following commands to create symbolic links in the startup folders
for run levels
3 and 5. MySQL will now start automatically when you boot up.
cd /etc/rc3.d
ln -s ../init.d/mysql S85mysql
ln -s ../init.d/mysql K85mysql
cd /etc/rc5.d
ln -s ../init.d/mysql S85mysql
ln -s ../init.d/mysql K85mysql
cd ../init.d
chmod 755 mysql

I restarted but mysql didn't started on this sensor...!!!

to install it on the this sensor (my sql client I mean..)
