Description Michal Schorm 2017-09-21 12:44:24 UTC
Hello, a MariaDB went through big changes and your package will probabbly need a patch. However your package FTBFS in rawhide, so I have no way to test the patch.

In most cases, this command was enough to fix all the issues:

sed -i "s/mysql-devel/mariadb-connector-c-devel/" $(fedpkg gimmespec) ; \
sed -i "s/mariadb-devel/mariadb-connector-c-devel/" $(fedpkg gimmespec) ; \
sed -i "s/%{_libdir}\/mysql/%{_libdir}\/mariadb/" $(fedpkg gimmespec) ; \
sed -i "s/mariadb-connector-c-devel/mariadb-connector-c-devel openssl-devel/" $(fedpkg gimmespec) ;

This change is currently applicable to the Rawhide (f28) only.

FTBFS problem:
package compat-openssl10-devel-1:1.0.2j-9.fc28.x86_64 conflicts with openssl-devel provided by openssl-devel-1:1.1.0f-9.fc27.x86_64

For more information check the tracking bugzilla.

Comment 1 Kevin Kofler 2017-09-21 14:53:39 UTC
Qt is not compatible with MariaDB Connector/C:

Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2017-09-21 14:55:41 UTC
Furhter, qt(4) cannot use openssl-1.1.x (or newer) either.  compat-openssl10 is required here.  Did mariadb packaging change to hard-code openssl-devel again?  If so, please reconsider and revert to allow either openssl headers if possible.

Comment 3 Kevin Kofler 2017-09-25 10:53:32 UTC
For QTBUG-63108, we probably need to backport:

Comment 4 Michal Schorm 2017-10-23 14:34:10 UTC

MariaDB updated to OpenSSL 1.1 in 10.2 version. In Fedora, that update is backported even to mariadb 10.1 (f26, f25).

mariadb-connector-c builds with openssl 1.1, however it does not require it, so there should not be a RPM conflict.
However your question is - I think - wherther it would work properly with openssl 1.0 too, when build with openssl 1.1.
There, I'm not sure. I would need to ask the upstream, but it is IMHO bad idea in general (to use it like that).

Rex, Kevin:

However if QT does not need OpenSSL with MariaDB, but it only use it in different part, we should not encounter this issue anayway.

Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2017-10-23 19:16:45 UTC
Thanks, my only concern was the openssl conflicts referenced in the initial comment.  Seems like things are ok now.

* Mon Oct 23 2017 Rex Dieter <rdieter> - 1:4.8.7-32
- BR: mariadb-connector-c-devel (f28+, #1494085)
- backport mysql driver mariadb fix (QTBUG-63108)
