Sure you don't have another instance of mysqld running? Do you have permission to create a file of that name for the UNIX socket?

what does ps -ef | grep mysql give you? This lists your currently running processes, so look at that and see if you have two instances of mysql running.

What does ls -l /var/run/mysql/mysql.sock give you? Also, ls -ld /var/run/mysql. MySQL will create the socket for you, if the user starting MySQL has the necessary permissions.
