I'm trying to set up a XAMPP installation on my work laptop - that's why I go for XAMPP and not regular LAMP so I don't have to have start-up services etc. But I get an error when trying to start MySQL. I've tried changing permissions but I don't really know what to do.
Here is my error log:
110922 21:39:20 mysqld_safe Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /opt/lampp/var/mysql 110922 21:39:20 [Note] Plugin 'FEDERATED' is disabled. /opt/lampp/sbin/mysqld: Can't find file: './mysql/plugin.frm' (errno: 13) 110922 21:39:20 [ERROR] Can't open the mysql.plugin table.

InnoDB: Cannot continue operation. 110922 21:39:20 mysqld_safe mysqld from pid file /opt/lampp/var/mysql/niklas-ubuntu.pid ended
Does anyone have any idea how to fix this?
Thank you for your time! :)
