Thanks, Robert, Clayton

It's always a surprise when a bombshell like this drops and your are
wondering "... not even a peep on the list prior to the update?" "do they
people just won't notice stuff like this?"...

What mysql update are you talking about?



I did an update yesterday and with zypper's or yast's 'magic' the
deleted mysql from my system and replaced it with 'MariaDB'. I sure in the heck
didn't tell it to do that. Somebody at Novell included code somewhere that says
"On the next update, delete mysql and replace it with MariaDB -- and don't make
it obvious to the user."

I do have OBS-database as a repository and looking at the individual
that is where 'sweet Maria' must have come from. I think you are safe as long as
you don't have the database repo active. (Of course, I could be wrong there -
you might meet her on your next date .. I mean update ;-)
