MySQL will not automatically start when booting the computer. 
While booting i get
Starting MySQL................................... [FAILED] 

I can manually start the server with "mysqld_safe".

While installing there is no my.cnf created.
Creating my.cnf in the datadir (/var/lib/mysql) makes no difference

How to repeat:
(Re-)install linux with 
rpm -Uvih MySQL-server-5.0.27-0.i386.rpm

I don't know if it is relevant to know that I installed MySQL on a laptop running Fedora core 5 with the latest update.

The /var/lib/mysql/BCP012W.home.err logfile only says:
061129 10:12:13 mysqld started
061129 10:12:14 mysqld ended

SELinux blocks the mysqld-daemon!
Disable the block and the server starts up at boot.

Thank you for a problem report. If disabling SELinux helped in your case, this report is a duplicate of known bug #12676.
