I'm trying to get MySQL installed to work with Snort.
I've been running into a ton of errors though.

emoran@spot:/var/log$ sudo dpkg --configure mysql-server-5.1
Setting up mysql-server-5.1 (5.1.63-0ubuntu0.11.10.1) ...
start: Job failed to start
invoke-rc.d: initscript mysql, action "start" failed.
dpkg: error processing mysql-server-5.1 (--configure):
subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:

I'm also getting this error:

emoran@spot:/usr/share/mysql$ mysql -u root -p
Enter password:
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (111)

any help is appreciated! :)
