I maintain my own repository for the mysql, mysql55 and mysql56 packages, built in clean chroot and signed with official Arch Linux key (therefore no need to import an extraneous key or keyring)

SigLevel = Required
Server =$repo/$arch

mysql is included in ArchlinuxCN repository. Please add these

[archlinuxcn] Server =$arch

Once the repo is added, archlinuxcn-keyring package must be installed before mysql so you do not get errors about PGP signatures.

Also if you want to try bleeding edge mariadb-git, you can also find it in the repo.

You can also download the package with the latest version of MySQL precompiled here: << >> Instructions for installing are in the repository. HAVE FUN!

I'm trying to install this mysql package (v5.7.20-1) in Antergos linux and kept failed with this error message:

I have made sure my system is up-to-date and I don't have mariadb and libmariasbclient installed.

Fed up with many retries which takes a lot of time to compile, I finally gave up and installed mariadb instead.

@francoism90 that's correct! even the mariadb doesn't launch the mysql_secure_installation, only prints a message to ask the user to execute it, only during the first package installation

francoism90 commented on 2017-12-17 20:53

@Muflone It's more because of the mariadb package does this:

Muflone commented on 2017-12-16 16:56

@francoism90 it's not duty of the packager to secure the installation or autoconfigure the server. Moreover the mysql_secure_installation requires user intervention which must not to be done from packages install.

francoism90 commented on 2017-12-12 19:48

Could you add this to .install: mysql_secure_installation

Thanks. :)

I think both packages shares a lot of common files.
@gino simply uninstall percona-server-clients and every other percona-server package which is a replacement for mysql

ginoboy commented on 2017-10-03 00:13

without AUR helper..
error: could not perform operation (conflicting files) /usr/share/man/man1/mysqlpump.1.gz exists in both percona-server-clients and mysql
the problem is with that conflict.. one solution would't be to remove this man file?
