Hi, folks!

I try to use mysqldump to backup my databases (mysqldump -Aac > backup.sql) and get the following error message:
Unknown suffix '/' used for variable 'socket' (value '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock')
mysqldump: Error while setting value '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' to 'socket'

How can I solve the problem?

The file mysqld.sock exist but is empty.
The Version of MySQL is 4.0.18 for pc-linux-gnu on i686
OS: Debian

Thanks
Matthias
