@somlo: thanks for reporting, the new update mariadb-galera-10.0.17-3.fc21 should fix this issue.

On a fresh install, after running "yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing", an attempt to start mariadb via "systemctl start mariadb.service" fails, with the following log data: mysql-prepare-db-dir: Initializing MariaDB database mysql-prepare-db-dir: 150330 9:08:49 [ERROR] Can't find messagefile '/usr/share/mariadb-galera/errmsg.sys' mysql-prepare-db-dir: 150330 9:08:49 [ERROR] Aborting mysql-prepare-db-dir: 150330 9:08:49 [Note] mysql-prepare-db-dir: cat: write error: Broken pipe mysql-prepare-db-dir: Installation of system tables failed! Examine the logs in mysql-prepare-db-dir: /var/lib/mysql for more information. mysql-prepare-db-dir: The problem could be conflicting information in an external mysql-prepare-db-dir: my.cnf files. You can ignore these by doing: mysql-prepare-db-dir: shell> /usr/bin/scripts/mysql_install_db --defaults-file=~/.my.cnf mysql-prepare-db-dir: You can also try to start the mysqld daemon with: mysql-prepare-db-dir: shell> /usr/libexec/mysqld --skip-grant --general-log & mysql-prepare-db-dir: and use the command line tool /usr/bin/mysql mysql-prepare-db-dir: to connect to the mysql database and look at the grant tables: mysql-prepare-db-dir: shell> /usr/bin/mysql -u root mysql mysql-prepare-db-dir: mysql> show tables; mysql-prepare-db-dir: Try 'mysqld --help' if you have problems with paths. Using mysql-prepare-db-dir: --general-log gives you a log in /var/lib/mysql that may be helpful. mysql-prepare-db-dir: The latest information about mysql_install_db is available at mysql-prepare-db-dir: mysql-prepare-db-dir: MariaDB is hosted on launchpad; You can find the latest source and mysql-prepare-db-dir: email lists at mysql-prepare-db-dir: Please check all of the above before submitting a bug report mysql-prepare-db-dir: at mysql-prepare-db-dir: Initialization of MariaDB database failed. mysql-prepare-db-dir: Perhaps /etc/my.cnf is misconfigured. systemd: mariadb.service: control process exited, code=exited status=1 systemd: Failed to start MariaDB 10.0 database server. systemd: Unit mariadb.service entered failed state. systemd: mariadb.service failed. The same error occurs if/when mariadb-galera-server is pulled in by puppet from openstack-packstac ("packstack --allinone").


looks good


Personal LAMP and mail server running GNOME. All OK.


no problem as normal user
