### Show all databases

IIRC the version of MySQL that ships with Slackware doesn't have the initial databases created. Take a look at http://www.mysql.com/doc/en/Post-installation.html I think you'll need to run the mysql_install_db script to create that database that holds the details of users like root. You might want to try specifying a blank password, or just use mysql without the -p option so it doesn't try to use a password. This password is completely seperate from the usual root password.

I take it that mysql is running? Can you see it in your process list? (ps -ef)

At the risk of saying RTFM - MySQL isn't that difficult to get running but its really worth carefully reading the available documentation, especially the bits on post installation setup and on user account creation.
