Mysql 5.5.x doesn't seem to be supported under Mac OS X
It took me a while to figure that out but mysql 5.5.x is not supported.
I downgraded to mysql 5.1.59 and that worked ok.
Maybe RedmineInstall at least should mention this because I looked at the support forum and more people are running into this issue.
I was running Redmine 1.2.1 mysql 5.5.x (64-bit) MacOS X 10.7.1
but this 5.5.59 worked.
Also redmine install notes should include how to install gem mysql on these platforms:
sudo env ARCHFLAGS="-arch x86_64" gem install mysql --no-rdoc --no-ri -- --with-mysql-config=/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql_config
or for Postgresql
sudo env ARCHFLAGS="-arch x86_64" gem install pg
Replace x86_64 with i386 for 32-bit version of those databases installed.

FWIW, as I just finished installing redmine 1.2.2 onto a 10.7.2 server I notice from my bash history I simply used:
sudo gem install pg
Attached is a list of my bash history as related to getting redmine 1.2.2 running with 10.7.2 server. Maybe it might help some poor lost soul.

- Status changed from New to Closed
- Resolution set to Wont fix
It seems mysql 5.5 is now installed by default on Mountain Lion (at least I don't remember having installed it ; but maybe I did it inadvertently with brew), so I'll close this issue. Feel free to reopen if I'm wrong. Thanks.
