Topic: Problem with mysql
Cause of a harddrive crash, I needed to reinstall Linux, so I decided to go with slackware. Did the full install. I have appache running, however, in the terminal window, when I type, "mysql start", I get this :"Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysql.sock' (2)". Downloaded the latest stable version of mysql, and ran "./configure", "make", then "make install". Yet when I try to start mysql, I get the same error.
After searching, I could not find any "mysql.sock" file.
