Is there any workaround for this? I can't install anything, package is broken.

And I can't work without MySQL.

I ended up completely formatting my HDD, because the last upgrade f*** up my system:
- every time I opened a new tab in Terminal of the file explorer it crashed.
- I couldn't make mysql start.
- the system was really unstable.

I lost a day of fixing problems, formatting and installing new Linux (LinuxMINT now btw).. this shouldn't happen guys ...

Sasa Stamenkovic (umpirsky) wrote :

Oh man, not formatting.

This upgrade f*** my both computers. There must be some lighter way to do it. Maybe reinstalling from CD? I think there is some option when running installer.

Thanks anyway for your fast response, I'm really sorry this things happen.

Can anyone suggest workaround, please? At least tell me to reinstall Ubuntu.

This is what I did to get mysql 5.5 running on ubuntu 12.04

After upgrading to 12.04 I got the errors listed in the bug report and I
could not start mysql or set a password.

what I did was to run

1) sudo apt-get --purge remove mysql-server-5.1 mysql-server-5.5

and then run

2) sudo apt-get install mysql-server-5.5
3) sudo netstat- tap | grep mysql
4) sudo etc/init.d/mysql restart

After these steps mysql started running fine, I could create password and I
then installed phpmyadmin to create tables and manage the database. Hope it
helps.

Thanks,

My problem was related to the datadir. I had it set up to go to an external harddisk but when I pointed it back to the default setup it worked fine again. When I change it back to the other path, mysql won't start.

datadir = /var/lib/mysql
#datadir = /mnt/Work/mysql

@4ing

Mysql is restricted in terms of what it can access by apparmor - if you use non-standard locations then you need to update the apparmor profile to include them.

These can get set in /etc/apparmor.d/local/usr.sbin.mysqld - you will need to add something like:

  /mnt/Work/mysql r,
  /mnt/Work/mysql/** rwk,

Thanks for the response james, I actually tried that but couldn't get it to work. I fixed the problem by just linking to the database files in the /usr/var/lib
