- and no prompt appears (I waited a long time)
Thats ok, the mysql program has no prompt. It just starts and gets to the background as ID [1] 5790.

If I try to input the next command from another shell window, I get:

root@server2:~# mysql -u root mysql
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)
