Comment 10 for bug 573318


i've the same issue, it's a very bad time for me to have this issue...

daemon.log shows only this :

May 17 19:05:28 sd1 init: mysql pre-start process (4506) terminated with status 1

nothing in kern.log

in safe mode, it works.

It seems that some ubuntu specific init scripts is wrong here...
