I have recently installed Fedora 31. Everything is going good and fine except for being able to get MySQL to work. I was following https://www.if-not-true-then-false.com/2010/install-mysql-on-fedora-centos-red-hat-rhel/ to install MySQL on my machine but it didn’t work. Whenever I issue the command
sudo systemctl start mysqld.service
my computer hangs for about 5 mins. It then works sluggishly. Even rebooting the computer takes a long time. To understand the problem, I issued the command
systemctl status mysqld.service
and here is it’s output:
Upon reading about this problem on some forums, I issued the command
sudo systemctl start mariadb.service
but I got the message “Failed to enable unit: Unit file mariadb.service does not exist.”
What should I do to get MySQL up and running on my system? I was using it perfectly with Fedora 30 but now, after the fresh install of Fedora 31, I can’t seem to make it work.
Thanking you in anticipation.
