Subject: installation problem of MySQL on OS Lion

I installed MySQL on a Mac Pro running OS Lion.

The installation was successful, but starting the mysql server generated the following error message:

Martin-Muellers-Mac-Pro:~ martin$ sudo /usr/local/mysql/support-files/mysql.server start
Starting MySQL
....... ERROR! Manager of pid-file quit without updating file.


I'll be grateful for any help
