I try to install MySQL on my Mac but I didn't succeeded at opening the .pkg file. Probably I should use the installer in application/utilities but I can't find it either.

WHere di you get the .pkg file from. Double clicking on it in finder should work –  Mark Aug 2 '10 at 16:44

An easier option worth considering is to just go with mamp. It installs everything you need to setup a development environment on a mac.

I'm not sure what your question is, but have you downloaded the installer packages from MySQL.com?

They have worked well for me in the past.
