Hello Horrible Henry
Here is where I'm at, I installed MySQL-shared-compat-4.1.8-0, that the url was given to first then the server and then the rest. when trying to log into mysql I still get this error? Been reading on mysql site and still same error?
[root@locahost ~]# rpm -qa | grep -i mysql
[root@locahost ~]# mysql -root -p
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)
