What are the steps I have to take after compilation and installation?

It was pretty straight-forward to compile and install MySQL to my home directory. I used this command:

cmake -D MYSQL_DATADIR=/home/tomas/mysql/data -D SYSCONFDIR=/home/tomas/mysql/etc -D CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/home/tomas/mysql .

Now I have MySQL installed in the folder '/home/tomas/mysql'. What now? The server refuses to start because I'm lacking the tables in the mysql database, and mysql_install_db is refusing to work without giving me any reason as far as I can tell.

If anybody could spell the process out for me that would help a lot, and I'm sure future visitors would be grateful as well!
