Ugh. Trying to reinstall MySQL on my iMac. Leopard comes with a default, but its not up to date. Anyways, You know you need help, or a better paying job, when you have issues installing a new piece of software that comes in pre-compiled binary packages.
I'd rather spend 4 hours compiling php and mysql than fuck around "trying" to get a binary package installed correctly for 3 hours. At least I can go to the bar in the middle of compiling time.
