[opensuse] Mysql cannot find /var/run/mysql/mysql.sock
Hi Folks!
I hav a question with regard to mysql: I want to change the password, but everything i try with mysql brings out the same error:

benji@linux-hy7i:~> mysql -u root
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through
socket '/var/run/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)

What is going wrong here? Actually the Deamon is already running:

benji@linux-hy7i:~> ps -ef|grep mysqld
benji 4974 590 0 17:40 pts/1 00:00:00 grep --color=auto mysqld
benji 32740 32737 0 10:49 ? 00:00:22 /usr/sbin/mysqld
--defaults-file=/home/benji/.local/share/akonadi/mysql.conf
--datadir=/home/benji/.local/share/akonadi/db_data/
--socket=/tmp/akonadi-benji.Du9H1E/mysql.socket

Thanks for help!! Benjamin.
