The server does not start after install of MacOS X Leopard Client (upgrade from an existing Tiger system). Neither via Preference Pane nor from the command line. Hint: no mysql user exists (but _mysql !) and the user management might have changed significantly (no netinfo) between Tiger and Leopard.

Re-install of 5.0 (MacOS X package format) did not fix the problem.

How to repeat:
Install Community server 5.0 on MacOS X Leopard (client) and try to start the server

Please do not submit the same bug more than once. An existing bug report already describes this very problem. Even if you feel that your issue is somewhat different, the resolution is likely
to be the same. Because of this, we hope you add your comments to the original bug instead.

Thank you for your interest in MySQL.

Just for reference, Bug#28854 is the MySQL.prefPane not working in Mac OS X 10.5 and bug#25008 is the non working StartupItem.pkg.
