I'm trying to get mysqldb running on OSX Lion 10.7.3 and I've installed 64-bit Python, but am having trouble getting the 64-bit version of mysql installed.
I've downloaded and installed the 64-bit dmg file here: http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/
Mac OS X ver. 10.6 (x86, 64-bit), DMG Archive 5.5.21 111.7M
I installed the .pkg file in the dmg, the startupitem, and the prefPane files. I added these lines into my .bash_profile:
alias mysql='/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql' alias mysqladmin='/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqladmin'
but when I check the status in mysql:
mysql> status; -------------- /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql Ver 14.14 Distrib 5.5.21, for osx10.6 (i386) using readline 5.1
Why does it say i386, and not x64?
I've even removed mysql using:
sudo rm /usr/local/mysql sudo rm -rf /usr/local/mysql* sudo rm -rf /Library/StartupItems/MySQLCOM sudo rm -rf /Library/PreferencePanes/My* rm -rf ~/Library/PreferencePanes/My* sudo rm -rf /Library/Receipts/mysql* sudo rm -rf /Library/Receipts/MySQL* sudo rm -rf /var/db/receipts/com.mysql.* sudo vim /etc/hostconfig # and remove the line MYSQLCOM=-YES-
and reinstalled the dmg and still the status reads "i386".
