Exclamation MySQL problems

I'm not able to launch mysql, or the mysql administrator gui component.

The error seems to be related to a missing mysql.sock file.

Here is the error (same in command line, and gui)

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

When I run 'locate mysql.sock' as root, I get nothing. I'm not sure what could be wrong, I have a fresh-clean install of php, mysql, php-mysql and PHP is working great, but I'm sitting at the install screen waiting to continue, needing to first make user changes to mysql before I continue. Dropped to the console, and the 'mysql.sock' issue stopped me dead in my tracks.

I understand what it is looking for, but I am at a loss to explain why the file would not be there, or what to do to substitute this file.. (the gui version allows you to specify a socks file).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
