Well friend am the victim for this to I have also been trying to work out with installing MYSQL5.5 in Mac OS 10.6 and it wasn?t done for a long time I was suggested a few suggestion from my friend I would like to discuss about one of the view I would give some two step which you can try out and see if it works so 1) Try to modify a mysql.server script command
Code:
(sudo/Applications/TextEdit.app/Contents/MacOS/Text Edit /usr/local/mysql/support-files/mysql.server)
2) Now in second step locate the configuration by defining the basedir and
Code:
(basedir=/usr/local/mysql 
Datadir=/usr/local/mysql/data)
and now save the file and start MYSQL server in the terminal.

I was going to a problem which displays something like this
Code:
(/usr/local/mysql/support-files/mysql.server: Line 256:my_print_default: command not found and starting MySQL error could not find MYSQL server (./bin/mysql_safe))
then you are having the same problem what I faced but don?t worry if this is the case you can solve it just edit the MYSQL. Server file located in
Code:
/usr/local/mysql/support-files/
do this in the terminal using emac or use Bbedit now simply search for a line which would look like this
Code:
basedir=datadir
and simply change it to
Code:
basedir=(/usr/local/mysqldatadir=(/usr/local/mysql/data)
and then simply reboot your pc and try running MySQL now hope it would be working .

Hope you have download MYSQL for MACOS X the one I downloaded was MYSQL for MACOS X Version 10.6 (x86, 64-bit) .After you download this there are some step and syntax script to make this MYSQL work on your OS and then you have to configure the database . After the simple step-by-step installation guidance, you would find the configuration steps to enable you to access the MySQL Monitor from a terminal session. Your $PATH environment would also be configured to enable you to start and stop the MYSQL Daemon.

1. It has been a headache to me to installing MYSQL in MAC OS X has really taken all lots of time of mine searching for a perfect solution but hasn?t got an exact solution still but what I have got some what that can be used as a clue for you may it help you go to the security setting
Code:
($ sudochown -R root:wheel/Library/Startup Items/MySQLCOM
)
and then set the basedir and datadir in
Code:
/usr/local/mysql/support-files/mysql.server
set them to
Code:
Basedir= /usr/local/mysql
Datadir= /usr/local/mysql/data
Let?s hope the best that it works for you
