[typo] Typo not working under Leopard!

the data is (are?) probably still there: it depends how you installed  
typo, and how you installed leopard. 10.5 includes rails and (I  
think) mysql and it will try and use its own version rather than the  
version you had installed before. the paths will be different, the  
data will be in another place and anyway, as the error messages says,  
mysql is not running.

first thing to do is find your old data and make sure it's safe. it  
might just be in /usr/local/mysql/data, or in /opt/local if you were  
using ports, or if you were using locomotive I have no idea. Find  
them (try locate), make a copy in a safe place, find out how to get  
mysql going, move the old data files for your typo installation to  
the place where mysql expects to find them, then try typo again and  
see what else is missing. you may need to reinstall mysql or some  
other components, but i would avoid doing that unless you feel  
comfortable setting up the whole rails environment.

I'm not running leopard on my work machines yet so i can't be any  
more specific than that. I hope it helps.
