I get the same error message when trying to connect to mysql.
When trying through mysqlcc it just hangs after:
"Testing connection to MySQL Server..."

I tried starting mysqld_safe in /usr/bin, but all I get is
"permission denied", no matter what the permissions are
set to...??

Windows is better for games; otherwise, you're better off
using an actual operating system.

Now here is a problem. I have been trying all of this on two different
PCs. One has SuSE 8.0 and the other has SuSE 9.0. I got mysql working
on both. I tried that link and phpMyAdmin worked on the 9.0
installation but not on the 8.0 installation. On the 8.0 PC I get

phpMyAdmin tried to connect to the MySQL server, and the server rejected
the connection. You should check the host, username and password in and make sure that they correspond to the information
given by the administrator of the MySQL server.


MySQL said:

#2002 - Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket
'/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (13)

Both databases are setup the same (as far as I know). In each I gave
permissisions to localhost and any host. I don't know why this doesn't
work. Any suggestions?
