Sorry, i have only suggestions.
- can you connect to mysql via a socket? Do you have add users privelege with one user?
- do you have a backup of the mysql database? (/var/lib/mysql/mysql/...)
- maybe just try a mysql db of another installation (same version numbers)
For the next time, start mysqld with the skip-grant-tables option
This option causes the server not to use the privilege system at all. This gives anyone with access to the server unrestricted access to all databases. You can cause a running server to start using the grant tables again by executing mysqladmin flush-privileges or mysqladmin reload command from a system shell, or by issuing a MySQL FLUSH PRIVILEGES statement. This option also suppresses loading of user-defined functions (UDFs).
