I am running MySQL 5.1 from package on Mac OSX 10.6. I am trying running: sudo /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqld --skip-grant --user root --datadir=/usr/local/mysql/data

This error is preventing me from starting the database and importing the timezone information or doing anything else. I've tried clean installing with no luck.

Any suggestions?

You're probably looking for Etc/UTC. Correct the relevant setting in your MySQL config.

I am not using Apache as a web server, so changing httpd.conf won't help –  Russell Nov 9 '11 at 20:07
    
@Russell: Sorry, I meant MySQL's config. –  Lightness Races in Orbit Nov 9 '11 at 20:39
