    I installed MySQL 5.0.45 using the package distribution download from mysql, then installed the startup items and then installed the preference pane.

    So when I click start mysql it doesnt start, in the preference pane that is.
    if i do sudo /Library/StartupItems/MySQLCOM/MySQLCOM start, it doesn't start...
    but if I do what that script does, that is run the same command, mysql runs that is sudo /usr/local/mysql/support-files/mysql.server start it starts mysql
    The same idea follows for stop

    How come the Startup Item does not work as intented? Is there something that is not compatible with OSX 10.5?
    Or have I done something that was not suppose to be done?

    I've been wondering about this myself. I suspect that both the startup item and whatever script the start mysql button in the preference pane does doesn't work with 10.5, for whatever reason.

    I can't say what the problem is but I thought I would let you know that I have 5.0.45 working on my machine (10.5.1). I had it on before upgrading to 10.5 and it still worked after the upgrade. So if you can figure out how to start it up it will work. Sorry I can't be more helpful.

    No No, mysql itself works, just that the startup items don't for some reason ... weird lol
