1) I've configured my "config/database.xml" adapter to point 
at /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock, which is what my mysqld specifies on the 
command line.  I checked, and the socket exists, and is readable and 
writeabel by everyone.  However, I still get the following error:

[dcorbin@bass ~/projects/app] rake
(in /home/dcorbin/projects/app)
rake aborted!
database configuration specifies nonexistent /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock 
adapter
./Rakefile:15

Please help.

2) Is this list really the best place to get rails-specific support? I can 
find no other specific list.
