I have been using mysql since fbsd 7.2 and always just issued the
mysql_install_db command on the command line to create it's control
databases and it just worked fine.
But now with 8.2 I get the following error and have no idea why.
I installed using pkg_add mysql55-server command.
# /usr/local/bin >mysql_install_db --user=mysql
FATAL ERROR: Could not find ./bin/my_print_defaults
If you compiled from source, you need to run 'make install' to
copy the software into the correct location ready for operation.
If you are using a binary release, you must either be at the top
level of the extracted archive, or pass the --basedir option
pointing to that location.
# /usr/local/bin >locate my_print_defaults
