I have been running TRACKS 1.7 for a few months on a CentOS 5.2 pc.

Today I rebooted the CentOS after updating the kernel. Now the TRACKS is not functional as the mySql won’t start.

Here is the output when trying just the mySql part:
[root@rh5 tracks17]# ./ start mysql
chown: `mysql’: invalid user
Starting mysqld.bin daemon with databases from /home/user/tracks17/mysql/data
STOPPING server from pid file /home/user/tracks17/mysql/data/
090918 10:30:29 mysqld ended

/home/user/tracks17/mysql/scripts/ : mysql could not be started

Anyone know what changed that it is asking for a mysql user? I do not recall seeing that in the past. Is the lack of mysql the whole problem?

Have you installed as root user? If you have installed as regular user you should use the same user to start it. Could you post the mysql log file: /mysql/data/mysqld.log?

i had the same issue and it indeed was a problem that the user that tracks is installed with was not root, so the xinet startup did not work.
how does one run “./ start” automatically as a non-root user upon startup?
