i installed mysql mysql-devel mysql-server by removing older one. i used commands as

# rpm -e mysql mysql-server mysql-devel --nodeps
# yum install mysql mysql-server mysql-devel
#  /etc/init.d/mysqld start

it says

-bash: /etc/init.d/mysqld: No such file or directory

then i tried locating it, so i did

# locate mysqld
/etc/rc.d/init.d/mysqld
/etc/rc.d/rc0.d/K36mysqld
/etc/rc.d/rc1.d/K36mysqld
/etc/rc.d/rc2.d/S64mysqld
/etc/rc.d/rc3.d/S64mysqld
/etc/rc.d/rc4.d/S64mysqld
/etc/rc.d/rc5.d/S64mysqld
/etc/rc.d/rc6.d/K36mysqld
/usr/bin/mysqld_multi
/usr/bin/mysqld_safe
/usr/bin/mysqldump
/usr/bin/mysqldumpslow
/usr/libexec/mysqld
/usr/share/man/man1/mysqld_multi.1.gz

/usr/share/man/man8/mysqld.8.gz
/var/lock/subsys/mysqld
/var/log/mysqld.log
/var/run/mysqld

so after searching found this page so i did

rpm -V mysql

but it says

# rpm -V mysql
package mysql is not installed

also did

# service mysqld start

but output was

  mysqld: unrecognized service

so i tried to install it again by yum install mysql but this time output is

 yum install mysql

Package mysql is obsoleted by MySQL-server, trying to install MySQL-server-5.1.48-1.glibc23.x86_64 instead
Package MySQL-server-5.1.48-1.glibc23.x86_64 already installed and latest version

It looks like you downloaded the MySQL-server package from the homepage and installed with rpm -ivh. Verify with:

$ rpm -qa | grep MySQL

If you want to install mysql-server from the repository (base, epel, ...), you must uninstall the MySQL-server first by executing:

# yum remove MySQL-*

and then:

# yum install mysql mysql-server mysql-devel

The init script from MySQL-server package is mysql instead of mysqld from mysql-server. The hint for you is type some characters (/etc/init.d/mys) and press Tab or TabTab.

when i install mysql it automatically install mysql-server in place of mysql. see my edit. –  Astha Nov 2 '11 at 6:43
    
I didn't see your edit. Append the output of rpm -qa | grep -i mysql? –  quanta Nov 2 '11 at 6:52
    
apologies. see its there now. –  Astha Nov 2 '11 at 7:14

The lesson is you should disable (enabled=0 in /etc/yum.repos.d/<name>.repo) the unusual repo (remi, smartfile, ...) and only enable when necessary yum --enablerepo=<repo_name> .... –  quanta Nov 2 '11 at 8:11

You probably have installed MySQL-devel and MySQL-server manually from the rpms and are keeping you from installing mysql.

Better of remove those packages with

#yum remove MySQL-devel MySQL-server 

and install it again with

#yum install mysql mysql-server mysql-devel

Also please post the output of both the commands above, that would help us to help you.

EDIT

The smartfile repository .. try disabling it ? with

#yum --disablerepo=smartfile

sorry, saw that you already removed the two packages, edited my post in accordance. –  Gaumire Nov 2 '11 at 7:45
    
thanks it worked this way. :) –  Astha Nov 2 '11 at 8:15

You start the MySQL-server by running:

# /etc/init.d/mysql start

Normally, the MySQL-client is in the package named mysql in the os-repository:

# yum install mysql

But since that's not the case for you, I suspect you may have installed a different package.

Can you try:

# yum whatprovides '/usr/bin/mysql'

It should give you a list of packages that provide you the MySQL-client.

First remove what you have:

yum remove mysql-server 

yum remove mysql

Then install :

yum install mysql-server 

yum install mysql 

yum install mysql-devel



service mysqld start
