Need help regarding MySQL

Tried to update MySQL through dotdeb and it seems like i screwed up.

/etc/init.d/mysql restart/start/stop doesn't do anything.

Before everything was working fine. Can someone please help?

server:/var/log# /etc/init.d/mysql start
I just realized patience is key to success... After 2 hrs of checking logs and try few things patiently found the cause and fixed it ;)
