There are TWO possibilities: 1. You already *HAVE* MySQL succesfully installed and running and now MySQL is saying, "Excuse me, but this little /tmp/mysql.sock file is telling me that I'm already running!" 2. You managed to crash MySQL so badly that it didn't clean up after itself, and that /tmp/mysql.sock file is a BOGUS version of 1. You can be *SURE* which is which by doing: ps auxwww | grep mysql Either you see some kind of 'mysqld' in there, in which case it's already running, or you don't. If it's *NOT* running, it's perfectly safe to just destroy the /tmp/mysql.sock file. If it *IS* running, do *NOT* remove that file -- You will cause yourself major pains if you do. -- Like Music? http://l-i-e.com/artists.htm I'm looking for a PRO QUALITY two-input sound card supported by Linux (any major distro).
