Dear Sir, good day..

       After install MySQL5.1 on Mac, from preference panel for activing MySQL, the "start database" bottom was pressed, however, it's still in "Stop" status, no further information provided, appreciated your kind support for installing issue. Thank you.

Warmest Regards

Specify the exact MySQL server version used. 5.1.9-beta? Is there anything unusual in the error log (hostname.err file in the data directory)?

I fail to reproduce this with a default configuration. Meaning, when I have no option files set in /etc/my.cnf (or other places) it works fine. When I have my own /etc/my.cnf with special settings, it doesn't work..

I'm still figuring out why looking at the source of Prefpane (which is an objective pain :P)

If you have an option file (my.cnf) with wrong information or errrors in [client] section, it will indeed not work.
