It's a fresh install of Sabayon Linux. I installed mysql (equo install dev-db/mysql), configured it (emerge --config ...), but it doesn't start using /etc/init.d script:
# /etc/init.d/mysql start * WARNING: mysql is already starting # /etc/init.d/mysql status * You are attempting to run an openrc service on a * system which openrc did not boot. * You may be inside a chroot or you may have used * another initialization system to boot this system. * In this situation, you will get unpredictable results! * If you really want to do this, issue the following command: * touch /run/openrc/softlevel # /etc/init.d/mysql stop * ERROR: mysql stopped by something else
Touching /run/openrc/softlevel causes even more errors. Googling doesn't advise much.
I remember recent OpenRC migration on my Gentoo box, but there I'm still using init.d scripts. Anything else changed I didn't notice?
