Hmm, interesting. MySQL starts fine here.

MySQL has a native systemd unit so you should have done "systemctl
disable mysqld.service". Once a native unit exists the enabled/disabled
status of the sysvinit script is irrelevant.

As a side note, how was your keyboard layout and do you have a
/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/00-keyboard.conf file?

Just FYI, having spoken to Lennart, the plan is to write a patch for
systemd-localed that will allow us to force a sync of locale settings
(and thus write the above Xorg snippet) to ensure everyone gets the
right keymapping. We will trigger this functionality on upgrade. This is
currently the only thing holding me back from pushing this. I'll try and
find time to write such a patch at the weekend.
