"InnoDB: Unable to lock ./ibdata1, error: 11"

First i must mention I am a newbie, so please be patient. I have searched the forum for this error, but no post relates to my situation. I'm running ubuntu on VirtualBox. All i have done to the ubuntu installation is to install mysql-server and client, django and python-mysqldb. When I try to run mysqld command for the first time I get the mentioned "InnoDB: Unable to lock ./ibdata1, error: 11". I'm not doing anything else important as far as i know...

When i tried to apply the solution that i found on the web:

"mv ibdata1 ibdata1.bak
cp -a ibdata1.bak ibdata1"

...I get "No such file or directory" and even when I try to access the var/lib/mysql to get to that file i get "Permission denied". I don't know what more to do. So I would appriciate your help very much.
