Re: mysqld startup problem
I finally tracked down the problem with mysqld not starting at boot
time. It looks like switching the display mode on syscon causes the
trouble. The following line's from my /etc/rc.conf:
allscreens_flags="-g 100x37 -c destructive -f 8x16 iso15-thin-8x16
VESA_800x600 green black"
When I delete this line from rc.conf and reboot, everything starts up
normally. Once I enable mode switching again, mysqld does not start at
all. Additionally, "ntpdate", which also gets executed at boot time,
fails, and does not set the time correctly.
Again, after the system's up, I can start all this stuff manually
I also experience strange timer behaviour in higher display modes,
e.g. executing "ls -al" in "/" causes the system time to jump at least
80 minutes or so ahead of real time.
With the MySQL subsystem running, a video made change via vidcontrol
causes mysqld to crash and again leads to funny time outputs.
I don't know how to fix this (except disabling the corresponding line
in rc.conf), but I guess it's somehow related to the VESA.mo problems
that were reported here.
