I use it on my iBook when I'm travelling and don't have access to MySQL
on my primary servers. I run it with Perl (DBI), PHP 4, Python (DB-API),
and Java (JDBC). I think I've gotten Ruby to compile and used the Ruby
MySQL interface a bit, too. Don't quote me on that. :-)
The one problem is that the server won't shut down properly. This
is apparently a problem with Apple's thread library or something.
kill -9 works, though. If you restart Mac OS X, it seems to pause
during shutdown more with mysqld running than when it's not, which I
attribute to the system waiting for mysqld to shut down, and then finally
force killing it.
