Don't do this.  If the Linux version is running 'just fine' use the 
functionality of the program you are trying to connect to the database 
to use TCP connections across the MySQL port.  This works real well for 
me and I'm in the Oracle world running Oracle on Solaris and many 
connecting programs through both the JDBC thin and OCI thick clients.  
You can ask on a MySQL support forum on how to do this with localhost 
(and it is very possible.)
