Mariadb install hangs when trying to start the service

I see there was another thread here: Problem installing MySQL in Fedora 31 - #2 by eulijn

But is the correct answer to not use mariadb? It seems the issue was never resolved (well the issue of actually using mariadb). I’m having the same problem, when I run systemctl start mariadb it hangs and does not work.

It works for me on Fedora 33:

Check the logs:

journalctl --no-pager -u mariadb.service

Turns out the VM I was using had a full hard drive!

Unfortunately nothing in journalctl or mariadb initialization complained about that. Though rare, seems that would be a pretty good log item for them to add :slight_smile:
