I am installing mysql-5.5.7rc from source. After the installation I start the mysqld service, but as soon as I run the mysql client service, the mysqld service gets aborted. Also mysql_install_db is not being installed even after starting the mysqld service.

I am using Ubuntu 10.10.

If you don't really need features from this version (do you?), just install the Ubuntu package, this should solve your problem. Other than that, do you have any more information like error messages or log file entries? –  SvW Jan 13 '12 at 10:25
What do your mysql logs have to say /var/log/mysql/* ? –  Iain Jan 13 '12 at 10:30
I am installing from source code since i modified the code little bit (in file sql_parse.cc) –  Dipankar Saha Jan 13 '12 at 11:33
