I used to use macports.. awhile ago.. I finally for other reasons uninstalled it.
Now.. fully gone/cleaned up/nothong of it on the system..
if I download Mysql isntall package.. or try to use homebrew.. anything.. on startup I get:
s:~ rs$ sudo /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqld_safe --user=mysql 110707 21:52:47 mysqld_safe Logging to '/usr/local/mysql/data/rs.local.err'. mkdir: /opt/local/var/run: No such file or directory chown: /opt/local/var/run/mysql5: No such file or directory chmod: /opt/local/var/run/mysql5: No such file or directory 110707 21:52:47 mysqld_safe Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /usr/local/mysql/data 110707 21:52:48 mysqld_safe mysqld from pid file /usr/local/mysql/data/rs.local.pid ended
What on planet earth is having a downloaded from the mysql main site.. having it "look at" /opt/local (macports land)
I can't figure out WHY it would ever want to look at /opt/local if it is the downloaded mysql etc etc
I basically can't, with homebrew or a mysql.com downoad/install package.. ever get and start mysql.
