Milestone 6 and MariaDB

I just did ‘zypper dup’ for Milestone 6 and noticed that mysql and mysql-client were replaced with mariadb. This is the fork of mysql being developed by Michael Widenius, the original author of mysql.

Pretty cool! For more info, go here:

Hi
And that’s because there was a misconfiguration in the spec file :wink:
Obsoleted was used instead of Conflict…

Do you mean that mariadb was installed by mistake?

Hi
Unfortunately, Yes :frowning:

OK, I’ll watch for the next update that deletes mariadb and installs mysql. By the way, Amarok still finds my music fine with mariadb installed.
