In OS X Lion I couldn't install
mysql. I get this when typing
brew install mysql
Error: You must `brew link cmake' before mysql can be installed
so then I type
brew link cmake
Linking /usr/local/Cellar/cmake/2.8.8... Error: Could not symlink file: /usr/local/Cellar/cmake/2.8.8/share/doc/cmake /usr/local/share/doc is not writable. You should change its permissions.
When I typed
brew doctor I get this:
Error: "config" scripts exist outside your system or Homebrew directories.
./configurescripts often look for *-config scripts to determine if software packages are installed, and what additional flags to use when compiling and linking.
Having additional scripts in your path can confuse software installed via Homebrew if the config script overrides a system or Homebrew provided script of the same name. We found the following "config" scripts:

Error: gettext was detected in your PREFIX. The gettext provided by Homebrew is "keg-only", meaning it does not get linked into your PREFIX by default.

If you have a non-Homebrew provided gettext, other problems will happen especially if it wasn't compiled with the proper architectures.

Error: You have unlinked kegs in your Cellar Leaving kegs unlinked can lead to build-trouble and cause brews that depend on those kegs to fail to run properly once built.
Error: Your pkg-config is not checking "/usr/X11/lib/pkgconfig" for packages. Earlier versions of the pkg-config formula did not add this path to the search path, which means that other formula may not be able to find certain dependencies.
To resolve this issue, re-brew pkg-config with: brew rm pkg-config && brew install pkg-config
Error: You have a non-Homebrew 'pkg-config' in your PATH: /opt/sm/pkg/active/bin/pkg-config
./configuremay have problems finding brew-installed packages using this other pkg-config.
Error: Your Xcode is configured with an invalid path. You should change it to the correct path. Please note that there is no correct path at this time if you have only installed the Command Line Tools for Xcode. If your Xcode is pre-4.3 or you installed the whole of Xcode 4.3 then one of these is (probably) what you want:
sudo xcode-select -switch /Developer sudo xcode-select -switch /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer
DO NOT SET / OR EVERYTHING BREAKS!
