Re: MySql doesn't start

I have a similar problem. I installed mysql on Suse Linux. I get this message:

ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2)

To fix this, I logged on as super user, went to /usr/local/mysql, and typed:

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/mysql

and that fixed the problem. But, I have to do it every time I use mysql. There must be a simple way to fix this problem.

Your help is appreciated.
Thanks,
Joseph
