root@killer-desktop:/usr/local/mysql# scripts/mysql_install_db --user=mysql
FATAL ERROR: Could not find mysqld
The following directories were searched:
If you compiled from source, you need to run 'make install' to
copy the software into the correct location ready for operation.
If you are using a binary release, you must either be at the top
level of the extracted archive, or pass the --basedir option
pointing to that location.
and thanks in advance for ur help.
