    Are you trying to actually run mysql from the flash drive? I guess it's possible if you have a linux environment set up on the flash drive with the mysql service running but I'm not completely sure what you're trying to do here. You need to at least verify that the mysql service is running before you can connect to the database at localhost and that's if you are trying to actually connect to localhost and not to some other device.

    I think I see what you're trying to do now. Assuming that you can connect to mysql from outside of the chroot environment, you need to configure your /etc/my.cnf file(desktop) to create the socket file on your flash drive in order to connect to mysql while chrooted into the flash drive.
