Somewhere maybe below a share directory you may have a mysql directory. 
In that directory you may find a scripts directory.  You may find a script 
called something like safe_mysqld.  try running that script.  If you got 
the swedish version of mysql translate accordingly and look for a script 
with safe as part of its file name.  If that script does not abort, as 
root try running mysql and see what happens.  If you've already done all 
of this then you've been reading the documentation and will probably need 
to run mysql-bug and send the results to the mysql support list for 
corrective action.
