How exactly? I mean there cannot be a socket file in /tmp either,
because MySQL does not even start properly. For example:
[root@dhcppc9 smaisnie]# ln -vs /tmp/mysql.sock /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock
create symbolic link `/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' to `/tmp/mysql.sock'
ln: creating symbolic link `/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' to
`/tmp/mysql.sock': No such file or directory
