Description:
Can't install system tables, get the following error when running mysql_install_db:

ERROR: 13  Can't get stat of './performance_schema' (Errcode: 0)
130413 20:48:14 [ERROR] Aborting

130413 20:48:14 [Note] /ffp/bin/mysqld: Shutdown complete

How to repeat:
root@DLINK:/srv# /ffp/bin/mysql_install_db --basedir=/ffp
Installing MySQL system tables...

Installation of system tables failed!  Examine the logs in
/srv/mysql/datadir for more information.

You can try to start the mysqld daemon with:

    shell> /ffp/bin/mysqld --skip-grant &

and use the command line tool /ffp/bin/mysql
to connect to the mysql database and look at the grant tables:

    shell> /ffp/bin/mysql -u root mysql
    mysql> show tables

Try 'mysqld --help' if you have problems with paths.  Using --log
gives you a log in /srv/mysql/datadir that may be helpful.

Please consult the MySQL manual section
'Problems running mysql_install_db', and the manual section that
describes problems on your OS.  Another information source are the
MySQL email archives available at http://lists.mysql.com/.

Please check all of the above before mailing us!  And remember, if
you do mail us, you MUST use the /ffp/scripts/mysqlbug script!

Based on my research, I'm guessing it's a permissions issue.. Can you please let me know the correct permissions required on the SRV folder?... also sub folders and root folder..

My structure ffp/bin
ffp/etc
ffp/opt/Srv
ffp/opt/Srv/mysql
ffp/opt/srv/tmp
