I installed mysql on 5.4 this will be used in conjunction with snort and acid. When I tell sql to start up with:

$ /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ start

I just get a prompt. When I check to see if it is running with a sockstat mysqld is no where to be found.
I checked the log and it says:

May 15 01:23:38 localhost kernel: pid 3006 (mysqld), uid 88: exited on signal 6

I googled around trying to find an answer. I did find that user id 88 is the mysql user and that it could possible be a rights issue. I thought I would check the experts before I start mucking with it.
