probably it is what mysql tries to tell you
'Bind on unix socket: Permission denied'
try to start it in the following way (just for a test)
# su - mysql (or whatever user mysql is run as)
# /path/to/mysqld --socket=/tmp/x
if it reports something about cannot bind to port
then there is another mysql daemon (or something at
its port) running, if it works, check the path to
/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock as this user ...
