This is a new installation (not an upgrade). The OS runs from a USB thumbdrive (32G). I installed mysql-client, and then tried to install mysql-server but the installation failed. Here's the error.log:

A couple of deviations are the /var and /tmp directories are links to directories on a harddrive (to avoid excessive read/write to the thumbdrive). The ownership and permissions of the linked-to directories are the same as original. Correction: /var was not linked!

From the error.log file:

2020-05-26T18:41:56.297387Z 0 [Warning] [MY-011810] [Server] Insecure configuration for --pid-file: Location '/tmp' in the path is accessible to all OS users. Consider choosing a different directory.
Not sure why this comes up as the actual /tmp directory has permissions "drwxrwxrwt" with root:root ownership.

From the error.log file:

2020-05-26T18:41:06.571075Z 6 [Warning] [MY-010453] [Server] [email protected] is created with an empty password ! Please consider switching off the --initialize-insecure option.
How do I turn it off? If I don't and successfully install with no root password, can I then run mysql as root with the command "mysql -u root"?

From the error.log file:

2020-05-26T18:41:55.732794Z 0 [ERROR] [MY-011300] [Server] Plugin mysqlx reported: 'Setup of socket: '/var/run/mysqld/mysqlx.sock' failed, can't create lock file /var/run/mysqld/mysqlx.sock.lock'
Is this a result of having /var as a linked directory (Correction: It's not)? I'd rather not, but I could create a couple of harddrive partitions and mount them on /var and /tmp.
