    Have you checked out the MySQL website? They have all kinds of docs that helped me set up MySQL from source.

    Which package did you use, The source, the binary or the rpm?

    mysql comes with slack, but it's not ready for use

    mysql_install_db will fix her up, then do safe_mysqld --user=mysql & and you can now connect with the command mysql

    good luck

    If you do have problems, I agree with t048, the official website has some great documentation, tutorials, readme's and such. I printed out the manual once and it was over an inch thick.
