    I've got a mysql server running on linux. It was working fine until this
morning when a customer wrote and told me it was not working. On
investigation it had frozen. I stopped and restarted it this is on an fc3
box, i get the starting mysql message but never get a prompt back. I don't
see any output in my /var/log/messages.1 file. I'm not sure where this is
logging and would appreciate any suggestions.

Quoted text here. Click to load it

MySQL errors are often logged to the <datadir>/<hostname>.err.

How do you start and stop MySQL?  I use /etc/init.d/mysql { start | stop }.
Is SElinux in operation?  This usually prevents MySQL from starting.
