I was installing mysql with apt-get install mysql-server (like I always did) before that I had done an apt-get update (I am using Debian 6), and when I installed I found this problem, pretty common as I see, but Ive followed all stepts and nothing have worked,
Ive tried with apt-get install -f also with apt-get remove mysql-server (and common, and mysql-server-5.1) and also with apt-get purge (every packate) and later install, but nothing...
I tried also
dpkg-reconfigure mysql-server-5.1 apt-get install --reinstall mysql-server (all runed as Root)
Still, nothing worked, any idea???

When I make mysql force-reload:
