I am having problems running MySQL 5 on OS X Leopard...
On the MySQL 5 downloads site, it doesn't have a version for Leopard.
(1) Are there any workarounds for getting MySQL 5 running on Leopard?
(2) What alternative databases do
developer use on OS X Leopard?

OS X is generally pretty good at backward compatibility - try the 10.4 version.
Alternatively, you can use PostgreSQL.

Have you tried it? I would think it would work just fine.
A co-worker has it installed and upgraded his machine. I haven't heard him screaming bloody murder, so I suspect it's just fine.
He just walked in: PHP socked setting is incorrect by default? Preference pane for starting/stopping it doesn't work. He says there are workarounds.

When I upgraded to Leopard, I used Migration Assistant to copy all of my settings and hard drive contents from my PowerBook to my new iMac.
MySQL 5 did work because I can see the databases that I made under the new directory. However, the MySQL 5 Admin GUI (located in System Preferences) did not work.
I found this particular
, which states how to fix my problem by compiling MySQL from the source code, but it also acknowledges that it doesn't fix the MySQL Admin GUI in System Preferences.
Would like to know if anyone else using OS X Leopard is having similar problems with MySQL 5 development and how they went about resolving their issues.
Don't get me started about those stupid
