Exercise 13.1 Using MariaDB software version update

serewicz Posts: 1,000

It seems that the recent update to python continues to cause backward compatibility issues. I will update the errata file soon.

To avoid python and pip dependency issues use a newer version of mariadb software. The updated version of the repo file would 

look like this:

[mariadb] name = MariaDB baseurl = http://yum.mariadb.org/10.2.2/rhel7-amd64/ gpgkey=https://yum.mariadb.org/RPM-GPG-KEY-MariaDB gpgcheck=0

Note the version is 10.2.2 instead of 10.1 listed in the current course book.  Using a new version of the software may show slightly different output in following commands.

    Thanks for the update. Will this new version be included in the course for other who will be taking it?

    We will be updating the content via the errata file on an ongoing basis (as it is now). As well when the content goes through a major review it will be updated.
