[FAIL] Starting MySQL database server: mysqld . . . . . . . . . . . . . . failed!

After stripping out MySQL completely, then PHP, and reinstalling still doesn’t work – WTF.

Next step – rebuild the machine – fresh install of Raspbmc might be nice!

    tail -f /var/log/mysql/mysqld.log (or wherever the hell your mysql logs are). Simples

    Hey, nice posts about the Raspberry. Thx for the xbmc on/off 🙂

    How do you mange memory consumption on mysql? For me it takes pretty much and i already had a memory problem where services where killed…

    Your xbmc has a little typo in step 2 i think (source /. not ./)
    Have a look at rpimonitor and pyload if you havent, nice little addons to rpi 🙂
