You might find yourself running into trouble when following the otherwise very well-written instructions on how to install a binary distribution of MySQL 5.1 on (K)Ubuntu.
If you get loads of errors while attempting to run
scripts/mysql_install_db, you should instead run
scripts/mysql_install_db --user=mysql --no-defaults
Rant mode on…
How in the world can instructions that specifically guide the user into creating an admin account with no password be considered non-critical???
