RTFM install issue with make initdb

Dear all,

I’ve currently installed the latest version of RT, and got that working,
and now I’m attempting to install RTFM. I’m currently trying to install
RTFM, and when I get to:

make initdb

I get this error,

Working with:
Type: mysql
Host: localhost
Name: rt3
User: local
DBA: local
Failed to connect to dbi:mysql:dbname=rt3;host=localhost as user
’local’: Access denied for user ‘’@‘localhost’ to database
’rt3’…returned with error: 65280
make: *** [initdb] Error 255

Should this not be attempting to install as user root??

Feel a bit stupid, after reading error messages, and actually figuring
out what was really going on, I discovered that the variables I thought
where in my config file, where not. A quick edit, and that solved this
issue.
