well, i have a ton of machines with more than one mysqld-instance on 
different ports, mostly backup/replication instances and so on or a own 
instance for dbmail to synch machines except the mail storage (home / 
office workstation and so on)

clone the mysqld-ready script with the same suffix and change path 
inside is easy

BTW mine don't use sleep since usleep exists :-)


# Service file passes us the daemon's PID

# Wait for the server to come up or for the mysqld process to disappear
while /usr/bin/true; do
  RESPONSE=`/usr/bin/mysqladmin --defaults-file=/etc/my.cnf 
--socket=/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock --user=UNKNOWN_MYSQL_USER ping 2>&1`
  if [ $mret -eq 0 ]; then
  # exit codes 1, 11 (EXIT_CANNOT_CONNECT_TO_SERVICE) are expected,
  # anything else suggests a configuration error
  if [ $mret -ne 1 -a $mret -ne 11 ]; then
  # "Access denied" also means the server is alive
  echo "$RESPONSE" | grep -q "Access denied for user" && break

  # Check process still exists
  if ! /usr/bin/kill -0 $daemon_pid 2>/dev/null; then
  usleep 100000

exit $ret
