mythtv-common doesn't seem to pull in anything at all in YaST but is itself pulled in by mythtv-setup. I'll do a bit more reading until my card arrives and try to make some notes when I do set it up.
Most of the documentation refers to mysql; does it work out of the box with mariadb instead, do you know? My experience with mysql just predates the mariadb split, and my dvb experience is even older.
Mine is installed with mysql, but I see mariadb was available too at the time. I have both mysql and mariadb installed in a number of places, I have yet to notice any incompatibilities. I know there are some minor ones, I just haven't hit any of them yet.
I doubt if you'll notice much difference between the two - maybe in the initial setup work, but not in the database ops. If I were doing a new installation today, I think I would probably try it with mariadb first.
