Subject: problem starting server

Hi there,

I installed a mysql server on my Mac using homebrew.

$ mysql --version
mysql  Ver 14.12 Distrib 5.0.91, for apple-darwin10.0 (i386) using
EditLine wrapper

When trying to start it I get

$ mysql.server start
Starting MySQL
.. ERROR! The server quit without updating PID file

What should I do to start MySQL?
