You wrote you were using openSUSE 11.1, the packages you installed are
for SLES10 (as you can see at the end of the name *.sles10). SLES 10 is
SuSE Linux Enterprise Server which is similar to openSUSE 10.x (10.1 I
Is there any reason for installing this packages which are for SLES 10
and not installing the ones for openSUSE 11.1 ?

If not then you should remove this packages and install the correct ones.
To remove them first stop the server with

rcmysql stop

and then type

zypper remove mysql-client-community mysql-server-community
mysql-connector-java-community mysql-test-community

(this all on one line!)


rpm -e remove mysql-client-community mysql-server-community
mysql-connector-java-community mysql-test-community

(again, this all on one line!)

Afterwards install the correct packages for openSUSE 11.1.
Use yast or zypper for that.

If mysqld.pid is not there, then mysql is probably not running or
something is not working as it should because you installed packages for
another distribution.
Install the packages for openSUSE 11.1 and try again.

Start your mysql server with

rcmysql start

Configure your mysql server to start on boot with

chkconfig mysql on
