    Hi

    I recently installed mysql on 10.5. I didn't build from the source, I used the 10.5 package from mysql.com/downloads

    I installed everything (package, startup item, and preference pane), but it won't start up from the preference pane. When i click on "start mysql server", nothing happens.

    Any help is appreciated.
    Thanks.

    Do this: If you have installed the Startup Item, use this command:

    shell> sudo /Library/StartupItems/MySQLCOM/MySQLCOM start
    (Enter your password, if necessary)
    (Press Control-D or enter "exit" to exit the shell)

    If you don't use the Startup Item, enter the following command sequence:

    shell> cd /usr/local/mysql
    shell> sudo ./bin/mysqld_safe
    (Enter your password, if necessary)
    (Press Control-Z)
    shell> bg
    (Press Control-D or enter "exit" to exit the shell)

    The MySQL package has known bugs in 10.5. You're better off using MAMP.
