I seem to have things ALMOST working.. with mySql.. but every time a request hits it.. it shoots up to 100% and stays there. The dbms test also hang at the end, but report finished: ok when I kill mysqld. OF the webapps, I have all working except the Jpivot example. I have narrowed it down to the wcf taglib... the jsp page crashes with "mondrian/olap/SchemaReader" error when I try to use it. What db runs best here? (I'm on winXP 2.2Ghz, 1GB RAM.. so I don't think its my PC.. )
