[arch-dev-public] [announcement draft] MariaDB replaces MySQL in repositories
b at bpiotrowski.pl
Sun Mar 24 12:50:57 EDT 2013
With `mysql 5.5.30-7` in [extra], all packages depending on it have been
rebuilt against MariaDB counterparts. MariaDB is
drop-in replacement, but not automatic one. Users may need to manually
install `mariadb`, `libmariadbclient` or `mariadb-clients` and execute
`mysql_uprade` in order to migrate their systems. Additionally, there is
another MySQL fork available in [community], `percona-server`, which
should be closer to Oracle MySQL Enterprise in exchange for new features
provided by MariaDB.
More background information can be found on [mailing
MySQL will be dropped from repositories in a month.
# systemctl stop mysqld
# pacman -S mariadb libmariadbclient mariadb-clients
# systemctl start mariadb
# mysql_upgrade -p
