I canged the "bind address" in /etc/mysql/my.cnf from 0.0.0.0 to my core's ip. 192.168.80.1http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=276470&page=4
But still didnt work. If i boot to recovery console and start mysql from the prompt it starts without errors. Then I "init 5" to get to run level 5. The then core wants to install the Nvidia driver and reboots. That lead me to think it was a Nvidia problem so after changing a varaible in the nvidia-install.sh I got the AV-wizard and now the core is generating orbiters. Holding thumbs.
Even though the tracticket applies to 10.04 it seemed to have worked for me.http://svn.linuxmce.org/trac.cgi/ticket/926
Edit: Rebooted manually and its working now
