I've installed mysql using Gslapt.
When I try to start it using 'mysql', I get the error message:
ERROR (2002) (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket: '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2)
I searched around on the MySQL website and man pages, and tried:
as was suggested by one user, but this produced the error messge:
ERROR (2003) (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket: '127.0.0.1' (111)
This problem seems to be known, but I'm struggling to understand how to work around it, being a newbie an' all...
