Starting mysql

No idea why I can't get mysql running on my rawhide box. When I try to
start it up, I get the infamous

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

This looks like the daemon isn't running or the service isn't running.

service mysql or service mysqld is giving nothing and I can't find
mysqld anywhere either.

There are some mysql-mmm entries in /etc/init.d but nothing else. 

How do I get it running?

Vertraue mir, ich weiss, was ich mache...
