Running MySQL Server on i.MX53 QSB?

Hello Everyone,

I'm hoping to get MySQL running on my quick-start-board. As it stands, the package has (allegedly) built/installed successfully through ltib, and the OS (run on the board) recognizes the existence of the MySQL executables. However, running MySQL yeilds no output - not even an error - and fails to start the MySQL service. Has anyone successfully had MySQL running on an i.MX5x board? If so, was anything special necessary?

Thanks.

I'm running MySQL on QSB... I don't use ltib to create my filesystem but debootstrap. The filesystem may be larger, but is a complete basic debian system.

Doing so gives me the opportunity to use the packet manager apt-get to install mysql.

apt-get install mysql-server
apt-get install mysql-client

If you do not have memory space restrictions I would generally suggest to use debootstrap giving you more flexibility.

You mentioned, that you don't get an output. Have you tried to enter "mysql" in your shell? Still getting no output?
