I am trying to install
mariadb but install exits as fail as
Mysql is running and it cannot stop.
MySql is not installed but there is a process running which I cannot kill
root@sonic-ubuntu ~ # ps aux | grep mysql root 8639 0.0 0.0 9496 2244 pts/0 S+ 08:55 0:00 grep --color=auto mysql
When i try to kill it respawns with a different PID
I have tried to identify what is starting the process using
ptree but it isn't showing up.
Running Ubuntu 15.10
Any help appreciated.
Okay if i try and install mariadb i get the following
Preparing to unpack .../mariadb-server-10.1_10.1.12+maria-1~wily_amd64.deb ... Failed to stop mysql.service: Unit mysql.service not loaded. invoke-rc.d: initscript mysql, action "stop" failed. invoke-rc.d returned 5 There is a MySQL server running, but we failed in our attempts to stop it. Stop it yourself and try again! dpkg: error processing archive /var/cache/apt/archives/mariadb-server-10.1_10.1.12+maria-1~wily_amd64.deb (--unpack): subprocess new pre-installation script returned error exit status 1 Selecting previously unselected package mariadb-server.

Which suggests mysql is running
yes but i cant find or stop it!
