Multiple problems as a result of fink
Authored by: torifile on Apr 30, '02 03:04:22AM

I've been very wary of using fink to install stuff as it has screwed up my installation several times. The most troublesome of which was the mysql thing. I've since resolved that issue by letting fink install mysql for me, rather than doing it myself. Not an ideal solution, but it's a trade off I'm willing to accept for all the benefit that having fink brings.

An interesting quetsion is why is there no "SystemMySQL" as there is for other programs such as XFree86, where fink just checks your system to see that you have a valid install, then creates its own placeholder to make fink aware of the install.
