Tips : Starting mysqld service on Mandriva Linux Free 2009.0

When you try to starting Service mysqld on Mandriva Linux Free 2009.0, the service coldn't start
with the following error message:

> ERROR: hostname cannot be localhost, mysql_install_db is quite unstable.

This is bug on Mandriva Linux Free 2009.0

To correct this error you must change hostname with something else except 'localhost'.

Go to MCC then 'Network & Internet' --> 'Hosts definitions' then change hostname and aliases

Restart the service.
