Hi,

Just got my first Mac.  I'm trying to install rails on it, using the
instructions in the rails wiki:
  http://wiki.rubyonrails.com/rails/pages/HowtoInsta...

I go to install mysql, and the version of mysql supported by
DarwinPorts appears to be 4.1.18.  But all the sites appear to only
have 4.1.19 or 4.1.20.  So it looks like DarwinPorts is over a month
out of date.

I went to look at Fink to see if it had mysql, and it does, but it
would appear to be the same problem.

Is my timing just unlucky?  Or are there newer instruction updates
that haven't been put into the wiki?

Thanks,
  Brad

If you want to get up and running quickly, just install Locomotive and
MAMP.  No building/compiling required.

Congrats on the new Mac.  Welcome to a world outside of the Redmond
giant where wonderful things become possible :-)

I'd install the actual MySQL binaries right from MySQL.com.  They have
universal binaries available and the install is straight forward.  I
know the Admin tool has a universal binary build, but I don't think the
query browser does yet.

+1 for the hivelogic article.  step-by-step, installed in /usr/local,
works every time.

Yeah, the Hivelogic step by step installation article is what got me
up and running - installed fine on two separate computers:

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

as you can tell, another vote for Hivelogic. follow the directions as
close as you can. everything is installed in usr/local so if any screwed
up thing happens, just delete it from there.
