Installation of system tables failed! Examine the logs in
/usr/local/var/mysql for more information.
You can try to start the mysqld daemon with:
shell> /usr/local/Cellar/mysql/5.5.10/bin/mysqld --skip-grant &
and use the command line tool /usr/local/Cellar/mysql/5.5.10/bin/mysql
to connect to the mysql database and look at the grant tables:
shell> /usr/local/Cellar/mysql/5.5.10/bin/mysql -u root mysql
mysql> show tables
Try 'mysqld --help' if you have problems with paths. Using --log
gives you a log in /usr/local/var/mysql that may be helpful.
Please consult the MySQL manual section
'Problems running mysql_install_db', and the manual section that
describes problems on your OS. Another information source are the
MySQL email archives available at

you do mail us, you MUST use the /usr/local/Cellar/mysql/5.5.10/scripts/mysqlbug script!
