I've recently installed Fedora 17 on my laptop, and I have tried several times to start the MySQL (mysqld) service on it but it refuses to do so. It gives the following error:
[root@blackbird2 michael]# service mysqld start
Redirecting to /bin/systemctl start mysqld.service
Failed to issue method call: Unit mysqld.service failed to load: No such file or directory. See system logs and 'systemctl status mysqld.service' for details.
But, when I go to reinstall MySQL with the
yum install mysql command, I get this error:
Package mysql-5.5.25a-1.fc17.x86_64 already installed and latest version
I'm not entirely sure what's going on. I installed Fedora 17 on my PC at the same time as the laptop, and MySQL seems to work fine for that. Has anyone any ideas?
