    Unanswered: ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysq

    Greetings,

    I installed MySQL 5.1.48-2 on Fedora 13 64bit.

    Whenever I tried to connect using the terminal by typing :
    [user@work ~]$ mysql

    I get the following error:
    ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)

    I also installed MySQL on Red Hat Enterprise 5 and I still get the same error when I try to connect.

    I Googled this problem but did not find a clear answer to this problem.
    Is there a step after installation that I've missed?
