Mysql Installation on Gentoo - mysqld.sock?

After the successful emerge of mysql. I ran the mysql_install_db command,
but when going to run mysql I get this error statement:

ERROR 2002: Canb't connect through Mysql server through socket 'var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock'

sure enough, there is nothing in the var/run/mysqld/ path.

Does anyone know how I can get htis file to appear, or if I am doing this right? I am using hte standard configuration settings for the my file.

your server is probably not started. I don't know gentoo, but /etc/init.d/mysql start should work (or /etc/init.d/mysqld start)
