I entered a password incorrectly using
mysqladmin -u root password 'password
Now I can't get into mysql and I can't re-issue the mysqladmin comment because it won't allow me to connect to the database. What can I do to get access to the database and change my root password?
this is the error I get when trying to run mysql
[root]# mysql ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)
haven't really read all of it, but it looks promising..
heh...those gentoo people sure can figure things out.

Thanks for the link. It is now working on my system.
