|Summary||0007586: CentOS 7 cannot resolve mysql-server to mariadb|
|Description||I am not sure if this is a CentOS-Bug or more a problem of software packages. Anyway, I am trying to install several server software and many of them require some sort of MySQL-Server. Right now I am not able to install those packages because they depend on "mysql-server", which can not be done. I know that there is mariadb-server as a replacement, but shouldn't there be a symlink from mysql-server?|
[root@kolab ~]# yum install kolab
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, langpacks, priorities
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
* base: centos.mirror.sharkservers.co.uk
* epel: mirrors.n-ix.net
* extras: mirror.netcologne.de
* updates: mirror.23media.de
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Package: kolab-3.1.8-4.2.el7.kolab_3.3.noarch (Kolab_3.3)
|Steps To Reproduce||- Install CentOS7 Base Server|
- Install EPEL-Repo
- Try to install any package which needs mysql-server like Kolab-Repo
- Fails due to missing package requirements
|Tags||No tags attached.|
While you are right that no package from CentOS provides mysql-server, this is by design and not an error as CentOS comes with mariadb, which, not surprisingly, provides mariadb-server.
For any packages coming from outside the CentOS distribution ( such as those from EPEL ) which cannot be installed due to missing dependencies, please file bugs against those specific packages in the suport venue of the respective repository.
In the specific case of kolab.. where did you get it? It is not provided either by CentOS or by EPEL. Anyway, you should get in touch with the packagers and tell them that their package is defective, it should require mariadb-server or maybe mysql-compat-server.
Thanks for your quick reply. The kolab-rpm does require mysql or mysql-server. I opened a bug report at kolab as well and found out, that this requirement was fulfilled by mariadb-galera-server.
This package was recently removed from the official repos, which led to some confusion.
Am I right that every package for CentOS 7 should replace MySQL-dependencies with mariadb-server or mysql-compat-server?
|Yes, you are correct. The only valid dependencies are those against the packages ( or, more precisely, the "Provides" ) that exist in the distro.|
