See /etc/init/mysql.conf, the post-start script (its the last one.)
This should last 30 seconds at most and starts by doing:
sudo /usr/bin/mysqladmin --defaults-file=/etc/mysql/debian.cnf ping
which returns (on a working system:)
mysqld is alive
You can do it from the command line to see the result on your machine.
In your next post, you mentioned using:
sudo rm -rf /var/lib/mysql to remove mysql's settings.
Just in case you don't know, that would also rip out your (hopefully)
existing mythconverg database!
You can see if its there:
ls -l | wc -l
Expect to see over 300 files if the MythTV database is there.
