Not having tried rekall myself but I would assume you would need to have 
the DB backend (mysql) running before you are able to connect to it.
Use whatever init sytem you distribution has to start it.
Look for a my.cnf file (probably in /etc) and you should find the socket 
location there.

This article may be of some help.

I managed to get OOffice 1.1.1 running with unixODBC after reading the 
PDF file mentioned in that article.

Can't say I've tested it heavily but it works and appears to be pretty
