Look in /etc/init.d and see if mysqld exists.  If it does, try to start
it with 
/etc/init.d/mysqld start 
Until mysqld is started, mysql will not be able to talk to it.

I just installed CentOS 3.5.  Included in the install was mysql.  When
trying to start it using: service mysqld start.  The system responds
with mysqld not recpognized as a service.  When trying to use
/usr/bin/mysql I receive this error: ERROR 2002: Can't connect to local
MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2).  A search
of the system does not reveal mysql.sock.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks for any assistance.
