I think I have it working now.
Never could find any my.cnf file in etc. Not in the present
installation, in the archived location or on my backup. I removed all
mysql directories from usr/local and copied from the archive. Trying
to start in terminal by using mysqld_safe was no fun. I never got my
cursor back. But opening another window and trying to run mysql
worked. And then Lasso could see my DBs as well. But I'm not happy
with the startup process stealing my cursor. Makes me worried that
there is something wrong.
And I still can't understand why a fresh install didn't work.
