@mrrabinhalder @matoro

I was running into the same issue. I fixed it by manually removing my previous maraidb installation before installing. For me it was mariadb-clients, libmariasbclient and mariadb. Possibly they should be conflicting but aren"t.

Hope this helps.

List of packages I have installed:
It's on a standard x86_64 laptop, kernel version 4.7.2. Any help?

the 'provides' option is used to mark the package as a replacement for another package. If some application has mariadb like dependency (any package in the official repository cannot have a dependency on mysql), this package can be a candidate for replacement. Obviously the two packages are different in many ways.

I think those AUR helpers should be banned. :)

@colshacol, on a more serious note, what's the AUR helper that you used to install this package, indeed? If that sounds like Chinese to you, then just please explain briefly how you installed MySQL.

colshacol commented on 2016-07-01 12:24

@Muflone Forgive my novice, I have never used MySQL nor MariaDB. But, I saw that you said that this has nothing to do with MariaDB, yet it says "provides: mariadb" above, and upon checking mysql --version, I get "Ver 15.1 Distrib 10.1.14-MariaDB, for Linux (x86_64) using readline 5.1".

I am not complaining. I do not even know the difference! I am just curious as to why you say it is not related to Maria at all.

My apologies, that line of code @kerberizer I fix everything the
problem, that rare that pass this, anyway I regret the anger I had with
@Muflone, I'm happy :D

I hope it will be cleared that your AUR helper (the program you're using to download the packages) is doing mess.
The package mysql is in the AUR while the package mariadb is in the official Arch Linux repository. Your AUR helper is downloading mariadb from the repository instead of the AUR package mysql.

Just download the package from the AUR, like kerberizer pointed and be happy with mysql.

ijann commented on 2016-06-27 21:05

ok @kerberizer take what I say and you dare my conclusions.

Not understand that this repository will not arrange the pkgbuild and is
avoid this mess,

Thanks for responding

kerberizer commented on 2016-06-27 20:32

@ijann, as Scimmia already explained, the problem is with __your__ AUR helper, whatever it is. Please use plain makepkg instead, e.g.:

$ git clone
$ cd mysql
$ makepkg -cCifs

Better yet, read about it on the Wiki. There's information in Spanish too...

Edit: Unfortunately, the links got broken, so please use copy-paste on them instead.
