Newly arrived and glad to be here.
When I run a DESCRIBE on a newly created tables, this is what I get:
ERROR 1 (HY000): Can't create/write to file '/root/tmp/#sql_1408_0.MYI' (Errcode: 13)
What's causing this? I can see "MYI" at the end of the message, and I have "innodb" specified in all my SQL tables. Is that causing it?
