Hi,

I am trying to install mysql 5.6.10 on CentOS release 5.4 (Final). I have downloaded all the rpm from the dev.mysql.com.

I am following the below link for installing the mysql(ignored in case of perl)

http://opensourcedbms.com/dbms/installing-mysql-5-6-on-cent-os-6-3-redhat-el6-fedora/

After the installation when I am trying to SET PASSWORD for root first time I am getting the error ERROR 1372 (HY000): Password hash should be a 41-digit hexadecimal number. After google found that solution for this error is for not root user. Same solution tested for root user but didn't get any success.

I am not getting the solution of this error on net. kindly help me in this case.

A RANDOM PASSWORD HAS BEEN SET FOR THE MySQL root USER !
You will find that password in '/root/.mysql_secret'.

You must change that password on your first connect,
no other statement but 'SET PASSWORD' will be accepted.
See the manual for the semantics of the 'password expired' flag.

Also, the account for the anonymous user has been removed.

In addition, you can run:

  /usr/bin/mysql_secure_installation

which will also give you the option of removing the test database.
This is strongly recommended for production servers.

See the manual for more instructions.

Please report any problems with the /usr/bin/mysqlbug script!
