i hope that I am asking my question on the right list:

I am building a zabbix server rpm for openSuSe. Zabbix has an (optional)
mysql backend that I want to be installed automatically. This only works
when mysql has no root password at the moment, how can I fix that? Can I
use user input somehow, so the user can fill in a mysql username/password
while installing the rpm? Or is there another way to resolve this issue?

not really. you dont know what package manager is installing your
package. in case of zmd e.g. it might be a daemon without any active
tty. i think the best approach would be some readme in the doc dir and
maybe a script like zabbix-config, which does the needed steps later.

hope this helps


yes thank you, a script is a good idea
