You might want to look at the MySQL error log - should give you
something more meaningful than the system log.
Note sure of the location of this in a default Debian installation as I
always use my own highly customised LAMP stack.
Look in the MySQL data directory (wherever that might be -
/var/lib/mysql is MySQL AB's own default) and have a look in the log
file there which will be based on your host name with a .err suffix.
The .err file has always got me out of trouble before.
Hope this helps.
