Start MySQL at startup (revisited)

Wow, this seems like serious overkill. What is wrong with downloading the OS X package from MySQL to install? It even comes with an extra package that will take care of all of the set up if you want MySQL to start automatically.

Start MySQL at startup (revisited)

And if you're a fan of fink and install MySQL using fink (like the hint writer did), you can also install daemonic from fink (if it's not installed already), and at the command line enter 'daemonic enable mysql'. The startup item will be created for you. It won't have all the features of the one in this hint, but if you're rather averse to using the command line any more than you have to, daemonic is an easier way to go.
