  When i issue 'mysql -u root mysql' or issue 'mysql -u root mysql' , i get the error: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2) . And if I type in mythtv from the commandline, all that happens is this: 
  [root at localhost ~]# mythtv

  2005-06-08 08:10:32.726 New DB connection, total : 1.    I was instructed to '/etc/init.d/mysql start'.... but I get the error: 
  [root at localhost ~]# /etc/init.d/mysqld start

  chown: `mysql:mysql': invalid user

  chown: `mysql:mysql': invalid user

  Timeout error occurred trying to start MySQL Daemon.

  Starting MySQL: [FAILED]

  It would be nice to just get the stupid database to work.

  Thanks for any help. Ian
