    Debian mysql autostart: line 159: kill: (####) - No such process

    Hi,

    I've just recently compiled MySQL 5.0.41 on a Debian box, and am trying to install the init script. I've copied support-files/mysql.server over to the /etc/init.d directory and set up the symlinks, but cannot seem to run it.

    Running: /etc/rc3.d/S90mysql start displays:
    Starting MySQL/etc/rc3.d/S90mysql: line 159: kill: (8076) - No such process

    The '8076' number changes from time to time.

    The script has the following on line 159:
    kill -0 $2 || break #if the program goes away, stop waiting

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    P.S. Wasn't exactly sure if this goes here, but it was the closest match I could find.

    did you install mysql in /usr/local/mysql? if not, you have to edit the mysql.server file to specify the install location.

    Yes, it was installed in /usr/local/mysql

    Anyway, I "fixed" the problem by just installing from the debian package (which had some configuration issues of it's own). Even though it now works, I'm still curious to figure out what the problem was...

    Also, there WAS a previous installation from source which was uninstalled, but it never had a startup script. I verified that no .pid files were left over, though.
