Installing MySQL on Ubuntu vs Mac

2007-11-14 23:26:23.565522+00 by Dan Lyke 4 comments

Because I am completely immersed in things Apple and Mac for three days: Installing MySQL on Ubuntu (The Mark Pilgrim way) is a response to Installing MySQL on Mac OS/X, Via Genehack. Especially given some "Panther" experiences, it was laugh out loud (and I'm sitting in a room with a bunch of other people hacking on code) funny.

On my Ubuntu 7.04 laptop I installed Apache and MySQL and all related LAMP goodies by:

Reportedly it works the same way on 7.10 but I haven't done it that way for 7.10, yet.

Yeah, the instructions are mocking the ridiculous procedures to do that on the Mac.

I saw the Mac one. Ugly.

Neither Mac or M$-Machines are really designed for such things or uses. You should be buying "solutions for data warehousing" from a company with a proper GUI installer that was "inspired by" the working code in an FOSS system.

I'm almost done with a day spent building a M$-2003 Enterprise Server, with SQL Server 2000 3a, a configuration demanded as part of a project. In reality, Even the MySQL on Mac is preferable. Heck, it took me 2 hours to get the ethernet drivers (Intel chip - standard stuff) working properly. Now I'm installing service packs and updates.
