i'm doing a fresh gentoo build with mariadb, i.e., not a mysql upgrade. problem is, after the emerge, mysql_install_db doesn't exist to create the initial tables. i can't start mysql without these tables. mysql_secure_installation exists but throws a "find_mysql_client: command not found" error.

how do i proceed?

tia

my portage files:

Code:
{~} cat /etc/portage/package.use
dev-db/mysql   embedded
dev-db/mariadb   embedded
virtual/mysql   embedded

{~} cat /etc/portage/package.accept_keywords
=sci-misc/boinc-7.0.29   ~x86
=dev-db/mariadb-5.5.30   ~x86
=virtual/mysql-5.5      ~x86

turns out mysql_install_db is included as a script:

Code:
/usr/share/mysql/scripts/mysql_install_db

It is included, but there are a few things to know.

You should run this command to make it work the first time:

Code:

./usr/share/mysql/scripts/mysql_install_db --basedir=/usr


Then start it up:

Code:

/etc/init.d/mysql start


And run this:

Code:
/usr/bin/mysql_secure_installation



I'm replacing MySQL with MariaDB right now, and getting all the details down.
