I got to here ^^^ and selinux stuck up its hand & waved at me.
SELinux is preventing mysqld (mysqld_t) "create" to mysql.sock (var_lib_t). 

And recommended I run restorecon -v 'mysql.sock', but:
[root coyote rpms]# restorecon -v 'mysql.sock'
restorecon:  stat error on mysql.sock:  No such file or directory

So I go back to the top of the list above and repeat, apparently forever cuz I 
get the same thing when I restart mysqld.

Now, since mysql.sock doesn't exist, because it can't create it, therefore 
restorecon can't do anything about it, WTH do I do next?

So I located the old one in the database, touched a new one, then 
'chown mysql:mysql mysql.sock;restorecon -v mysql.sock'  No errors reported.
But, a 'service mysqld start' eventually fails.  And now the selinux count is 
plus 2 cuz I tried it twice.

So how do we fix YAMYSQLFSCKUP?

Thanks Craig
