mysql startup

Recommended Posts

I can\'t start mysql. I get a socket error (there are not socket files in /tmp or elsewhere) whenever I try to run mysql or anything related from the command line. The machine just came from a developer who said mysql was running when it left his place. The only thing I think I did was look at drakconf and confirm that the network settings were correct. When I check localhost.err (where localhost=machine name) I get this:


mysqld got signal 11;

This could be because you hit a bug. It is also possible that this binary

or one of the libraries it was linked agaist is corrupt, improperly built,

or misconfigured. This error can also be caused by malfunctioning hardware.

We will try our best to scrape up some info that will hopefully help diagnose

the problem, but since we have already crashed, something is definitely wrong

and this may fail








It is possible that mysqld could use up to

key_buffer_size + (record_buffer + sort_buffer)*max_connections = 565245 K

bytes of memory

Hope that\'s ok, if not, decrease some variables in the equation


Attempting backtrace. You can use the following information to find out

where mysqld died. If you see no messages after this, something went

terribly wrong...

Bogus stack limit or frame pointer, fp=0xbfffec78, stack_bottom=0xcd9a2e0, thread_stack=65536, aborting backtrace.

Trying to get some variables.

Some pointers may be invalid and cause the dump to abort...

thd->query at 0xbe08570 is invalid pointer



Successfully dumped variables, if you ran with --log, take a look at the

details of what thread 65537 did to cause the crash. In some cases of really

bad corruption, the values shown above may be invalid


The manual page at http://www.mysql.com/doc/C/r/Crashing.html contains

information that should help you find out what is causing the crash

030415 00:13:52 mysqld ended
