So, I just spent about an hour trying to get mysql working on OS X 10.4.6.

I downloaded mysql vers 5.0.19 , after about an hour of trying to set the root password, using

./mysqladmin -u root password newpassword

I got errors like
Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)

I removed the reciepts file, removed mysql, using rm -rf mysql

installed version 4, and it worked. why does software installation have to be so difficult?

(starting up mysql with mysql -u root -p )
I found mysql can start up just fine as mysql, its just that you can't create databases, etc.
