Let's do some tests:

killall mysqld  

just to be sure we are not running any mysqld instances

find / -name safe_mysqld -print 2>/dev/null

It should print a full path to safe_mysqld

then use the stuff that it prints:

/path/to/safe_mysqd &

make sure to replace /path/to with the actual path

You should get a message about mysqld starting.

then:

netstat -an | grep 3306

You should see something like this:

tcp        0      0 0.0.0.0:3306            0.0.0.0:*              
LISTEN

mysql -h `hostname`  and you should connect

if you get that far,

try 

mysql

and see if you connect

post the results
