Response to: MySQL won't start

when I first run the mysql_install_db, I get this error:
[localhost:/usr/local] root# ./bin/mysql_install_db
Preparing db table
Preparing host table
Preparing user table
Preparing func table
Preparing tables_priv table
Preparing columns_priv table
Installing all prepared tables
ERROR: 1062 Duplicate entry 'localhost-root' for key 1
ERROR: 1062 Duplicate entry 'localhost-root' for key 1
020313 21:26:36 /usr/local/libexec/mysqld: Shutdown Complete


This has happened on 2 separate attempts on 2 different machines...what am I doing wrong?

    The "Duplicate entry" error message isn't too worrisome - I saw it on my own machine initially as well. Basically, one of the things that the install_db script does is to give the local user (you) access to the database. This error message is saying you already have access to the database. It's nothing you're doing wrong, and the error message you reported in an earlier message wouldn't be affected by this.
