I have a fresh install of ubuntu 12.04 server edition and mysql server is not starting properly.
I did a simple apt-get install
apt-get install mysql-server
But, it's failing with this error message
120618 20:57:32 [Warning] The syntax '--log-slow-queries' is deprecated and will be removed in a future release. Please use '--slow-query-log'/'--slow-query-log-file' instead.

I can start the server with the "--skip-innodb --default-storage-engine=myisam" flags, but would like to use innodb.
Does anyone know what the issue here is?
