I have difficulty starting MySql
My system is Sun Sparc SunBlade100 running Solaris 8 with W2K inside.
I downloaded a MySql package from www.sunfreeware.com and successfully
pkgadded it to my Solaris system.
Each time I run mysql_install_db, I get such error message:
# ./mysql_install_db
Preparing db table
Preparing host table
Preparing user table
Preparing func table
Preparing tables_priv table
Preparing columns_priv table
Installing all prepared tables
ld.so.1: /usr/local/mysql/libexec/mysqld:
fatal: libstdc++.so.3: open failed: No such file or directory
Killed
Installation of grant tables failed!
Seems the file libstdc++.so.3 could not be found. I checked /usr/lib,
indeed the file is missing from there. But I do have libstdc++.so.2.10.0
under /usr/lib, so I intened to modify /usr/local/mysql/libexec/mysqld, but
unfortunately, mysqld is a binary file instead of ASCII script file. I got
no way to change it.
So what should I do?
Furthermore, each time I run safe_mysqld, I get such an error message:
# ./safe_mysqld
chown: unknown user id mysql
Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /usr/local/mysql/var
Killed
020310 03:04:56 mysqld ended
How can I start MySql? Please kindly help. Thanks a lot.

I read the manual before I posted my question here. It does not help.
I have been posting my questions in mysql mailing list, in comp.lang.java.databases, in another forum besides this one, but nobody was able to help. Feeling so bad.
Is my problem so hard? Or not many people use MySql?

I've never had reason to run this command.

Furthermore, each time I run safe_mysqld, I get such an error message:

I've never had reason to run this command either.
