You can try locate mysqld_safe
Does it want to know where mysql is or where the socket to connect is? If it is looking for the socket it might be in /tmp directory

well both maybe, im just trying to update mysql right now, but I still need the mysql directory, cause I cant run a fix prevelige script, it looks in /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql.

But it isnt there, I looked in that script and I gonna have to alter that line to where my mysql database is localed, it says "bindir" so i think thats what it wants.

Could you direct me please?
If you installed a rpm or deb packaged the mysql is proabably in /usr/bin or /usr/sbin

you can try

find / -name mysql* -print

to search for anything mysql
