High likely your service is not running
this can be easily fixed by running

./mysqld_safe --user=mysql &
inside the /bin folder of the mysql directory.
where you can make the user command a user you wish to use.
Since you created your database as root, u'd have to boot it as root however this is UNSAFE, so change the permissions on the database files.

also see
http://vectorlinux.com/wiki/doku.php?id=howtos:lamp
since i am writing a full lamp how to. The last 2 code boxes apply to you.


hi Xeon. . hmm i have no

 /usr/local/mysql/scripts directory... Sad is there something wrong?  PLUS also NO mysql dir in the /bin directory

Apparently something is being missed so lets start
from the beginning. You stated you installed the latest
package. Where did it come from? From there what did
you do to get MySQL running. What tutorials did you
use?

This way there is a starting point to solve the problem.

bigpaws: from his huge quote i derived he installed the package, ran the mysql_install_db script and tries to change his root password on the mysql server, though he hasn't got his daemon running (missing mysql.sock is just not a spawned daemon.)

To be sure about it though:
icedtea do

pidof mysqld

as root in your console, and see if it gives any numbers back or not.
And as newtor suggested, locate the position of your mysqld_safe executable with his commands.

1.

$whereis mysql
mysql: /usr/bin/mysql /usr/lib/mysql /usr/include/mysql /usr/share/mysql /usr/man/man1/mysql.1.gz

$whereis mysqld_safe
mysqld_safe: /usr/bin/mysqld_safe /usr/man/man1/mysqld_safe.1.gz


2.

as root

pidof mysql -- blank result

pidof mysqld -- blank result

IIRC, that's an ownership problem on the binaries.  Make sure they are owned by root (chown root:root /usr/bin/mysql*) and then try xeon's suggestion again.
