Stuttgart: a rainy day, waiting for Iftar. Good time for good news!
During my vacation I read about a request for a MariaDB package for Mac OS X and did some research. Back from vacation I have an alpha version of MariaDB package for Mac OS X for our community to test.
Caution: this is the first installer I ever wrote on a Mac, so use it on a test system only!
I would like you to test the installer and provide us with feedback.
Known issues in the MariaDB installer:
- The Preferences Pane app for starting/stopping the server instance is missing
- The installer for setting up MariaDB as a Startup Item is missing.
Side node: while digging into the Mac installer I found two
bugs in the MySQL Mac OS X installer.
Mac installer does not work as documented
Mac installer’s postflight script does not work all the time
You can grab the package from here:
