I have been tracking this list for a while but I am nowhere near beeing
qualified to make this small change myself. Therefore I would like to
suggest to this list that someone more qualified made a change to the
MySQL package based upon the experiences I have had with:
mysql-client-3.22.27 MySQL, a free SQL database (client)
mysql-server-3.22.27 MySQL, a free SQL database (server)
A lot of users (well: me :-)) would like to start the MySQL daemon at boot
time but there isn't supplied any info on this. SSH and Apache does this
in a nice way in rc.d.
My suggestion would be
A) Create "/usr/pkg/etc/rc.d/mysql.sh" with the package containing:
echo -n ' mysqld'
B) Add a final comment after install that "/etc/rc.local" could be edited
to contain something like:
# Start MySQL daemon
Perhaps even add it automagically but with the .sh script as commented
out. I do not know wether it is kosher for the package files to fiddle
with /etc files. But just removing a # appeals to my laziness and I think
it would be easier for us newbies.
