During the slackware 13 install i selected to install mysql. But after starting it up, going into the terminal and typing mysql -u username -pPassword it gives me the following error:
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)
I have tried reinstalling mysql and even reinstalling slack, but i still get the same error. Any help is much appreciated.
