During the mysql_secure_installation, I get the following error upon entering current password for root (pressing enter for none):

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

Then it just asks for the root password again, (there is not one). This is a fresh install of mysql 4.1.15 on Mac OS 10.4.3 Server, (also fresh install). MySQL is running. What am I doing wrong?
