A different install experience
Authored by: foamy on Apr 04, '01 09:04:03PM

I use zsh for my shell, but tcsh should be similar for adding to your path.

Create a file (if you don't already have one) called .tcshrc in /Users/you/
to create new paths add
export PATH=$PATH:/sbin/:/usr/sbin/:/usr/local/bin/
putting in whatever paths you want. Add new paths with :/path/to/location/
at the end of the line above.

restart the terminal and type env to check and see if the new paths stuck.

If you figure out how to get mysql to start at lauch, let me know. I saw it somewhere after PB was released, but I can't find it any more. maybe lightyeardesign?

I haven't quite figured out how to successfully get the MySQLd running at startup, but after some experimentation, I noticed this informative document (link to local copy of Developers docs):
Customization Techniques
The sections on "The Boot Sequence" and "Customization Techniques" are of particular interest. I will investigate further...
