Hi folks, I installed a fresh Debian server today and then installed the slimserver and all deps from the Slimdevices Debian apt source (6.5.4)

It looks like now I've got two different mysqld processes, one is the standard Debian package configuration with the data dir in /var/lib/mysql and another mysqld which I can't tell where its db location is.

If I do what I am used to on Debian (mysql -u root -p) I get connected to the standard mysql and there's no slimserver database or tables.

I'd rather have just one mysql for everything (slimserver and other things I'm going to do like postfix virtual stuff in mysql, etc.)

Any suggestions? Thanks!

Umm, get over it? :-) In all seriousness, if you search the forums and wiki
you should find some resources about how to use your own mysql server. If
you want to do it for a learning experience, by all means give it a go. But
practically, it's just another thing to make your setup more complicated if
you run into any problems. Given the price of RAM, yada yada, it just
doesn't matter for most people.
