[Snort-users] Newbie Question -- Problem with snort-mysql install on debian

I have installed the Sarge install of Debian on my local linux box and
have narrowed down my earlier problem with two NICs.  Now when I start
snort it ends and tells me to check /var/log/daemon.log.  I see snort
starting and ending and this is what shows:

Snort: database: mysql_error: Can't connect to local MySQL server
through socket '/var/run/mysql/mysqld.sock' (111) SQL=UPDAATE senson SET
last_cid = - WHERE sid = 1

This is when I first boot up the machine.  Once the machine is up and
running I can connect to mysql, through mysql -u snort -p and it works
fine.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
