5.5 and 5.6 install problem, server says fails to start

suffekssuffeks EntrantCurrent User Role Beginner
i tried doing a clean install of 5.5 and 5.6, but when starting the server i get a failed to start error, ONLY when using a custom my.cnf from the toolkit, the server will start without the my.cnf in place. when using the custom my.cnf, there error is:
* Starting MySQL (Percona Server) database server mysqld [fail]

yet the server did start, however i must use the kill command to kill it

my custom my.cnf is below, i narrowed down the problem, if i comment out:
[mysqld]
socket                         = /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock

then it starts and shuts down fine, without errors

the my.cnf i have is:
[mysql]

# CLIENT #
port                           = 3306
socket                         = /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock

there is no useful reason given in the error log file, during both cases, with and without the startup fail error, the log looks as follows:

    ok, i figured it out, i had to change my.cnf from
    socket                         = /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock
    

    to
    socket                         = /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock
    

    in both places
