Imansible installare MySQL

Vorrei pensare di sapere che cosa sto facendo in una shell di Unix, ma forse no.

Ho commesso un errore in un file di configuration per MySQL, quindi ho deciso di disinstallarlo e di reinstallarlo, così ho fatto:

sudo apt-get --purge remove mysql-server mysql-server-5.0 mysql-client 

I file sono stati eliminati, quindi ho provato ad installarlo, ma non mi ha chiesto una password di root o altro, quindi ho disinstallato utilizzando il command precedente e poi ho fatto

 sudo rm -rf /etc/mysql sudo rm /etc/init.d/mysql sudo rm -rf /var/lib/mysql* 

Ho quindi riavviato il computer e poi installato nuovamente:

 sudo apt-get install mysql-server mysql-client 

Ha chiesto una password di root e tutto sembrava funzionare, finché non l'ho visto:

Ora non riesco a capire cosa fare. Voglio solo avere un'installazione pulita MySQL a questo punto. Sto eseguendo l'ultima release stabile di Debian.

Tutto l'aiuto è apprezzato – grazie!

Modifica: ho guardato questa domanda simile , che suggerisce di disinstallare mysql-common, ma quando cerco di farlo vedo:

Eeek! Eventuali suggerimenti?
