    You should call it LAMP, not WAMP as you are on Linux.

    I have Used XAMPP on Windows but not Linux.
    XAMPP is nothing but a bundle on free software.

    I would recommend to Install Apache, MySQL Server, mod_php, and mod_perl
    using your package manager.
    Never make any misteaks.

    looks like your mysql server is not running

    I would be that you have mysql server installed on your box .. before you downloaded and installed xampp. Make sure that you have it uninstalled or at least not started.. or disabled... before you try to start the xampp start script.

    you can do a "ps -ef | grep mysqld" on the commandline to see if it is running.

    you can disable it through the gui or .. if you are running a .rpm based distro.

    chkconfig --del mysqld

    you have to decide... are you going to use xampp for your webserver/database/web stuff.. or are you going to install it all naively.. each package individually and get them running together.

    It would be hard to do it half and half.

    I thought lamp would speed my things up.. but i was unsuccessful with that method, or if any one can resolve my problem i can use the lamp instead of going in a traditional way for my web development..

    This is the output for the command give
    harish@harish-laptop:~$ ps -ef | grep mysqld
    harish 13529 13497 0 11:49 pts/0 00:00:00 grep mysqld

    Well, I will uninstall mysql and php and go back to the first method
    please help me..I have couple of days left to start my project.

    Have a look at this how to. It is for setting up a server OS but the MySQL, Apache, PHP instructions will apply to the desktop edition just as well.
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    Thats a very good guide to follow,

    well, still i will say, its better to have centralized installation of every component in lamp, instead of using XAMPP.

    But its fine now, as you have solved the problem with it
