problems installing mySQL - Patrick Lenz's ROR book
I've been following Patrick Lenz's ROR Sitepoint book but I'm stuck installing mySQL on my MacBook Pro. I've downloaded mysql-5.0.51a-osx10.4-i686.dmg from the mySQL site. Couldn't find a standard package so I ended up with a community package.
After download I install the package and it says installation has been successful, but nothing happens. No symbol on the desktop. When I type sudo /usr/local/bin/mysqld_safe5 in a terminal window, I get the following response:
sudo: /usr/local/bin/mysqld_safe5: command not found
I've successfully followed the book up to this point, installing ruby and rails without any problems. But now I'm stumped. Any ideas?
