Package: mediawiki1.7
Version: 1.7.1-3
Severity: important

I installed mediawiki1.7 via apt-get install.
When continuing with administration via browser frontend i got the following error message:

# Environment checked. You can install MediaWiki.

Generating configuration file...
# Database type: MySQL
# Loading class: DatabaseMysql
# Attempting to connect to database server as root...failed with error [2002] Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2).

Therefore i think mediawiki1.7 needs a dependency, not only recommendation on the mysql-server package.
