You could also symlink it:

ln -s /usr/kasenna/mysql/tmp/mysql.sock /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock

    The chances are that the reason that the mysqld uses that location in the first place is that the user it runs as does not have adequate permissions in /var/lib/mysql in the first place.

      That is true. Although, I have experienced the same situation due to the fact that Fedora(Yum) still installs MySQL 3.23. That's a different issue though. :)
