New Installation and root cannot login with or without password

Hey guys,

I just installed Mysql 5.7 to my Fedora 25, but when I tried to login as root using no password it said login failed.

So I tried what it says here: https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/resetting-permissions.html

But mysqld says --init-file is not something it recognizes and there is no mysqld_safe to run.

I even tried removing and deleting /var/lib/mysql so it re-builds it, but nothing.

Any other ideas?
