Thank you for a problem report. What Linux distribution do you use? What exact RPM(s) you had installed (give URLs or full names)?

I suppose the main issue i'm having in fixing MySQL is:
- I looked at the error i'm getting on start up which points me to the file "etc/RC5.d/S64MySQL: Line 151". I've looked at that file and found the instruction which states # If you install MySQL on some other places than /, then you
             # have to do one of the following things for this script to work:
And thats fair enough but all i did was run the RPM from the desktop. At no point did the RPM ask for me to specify any information, unlike other server RPM's i've installed in Linux. I do not know where the RPM has set the data directory or the any directory for that matter. 
Was i supposed to run the RPM from a specific location maybe... ?

Do you have SELinux enabled? Please, try to start MySQL server with 

mysqld_safe &

command, and inform about the results.
