      Description

      can't install DB with the command: mysql_install_db --user=mysql

      The Error: Installation of system tables failed! Examine the logs in
      /var/log/mariadb/mariadb.log or /var/lib/mysql for more information.

      The problem could be conflicting information in an external
      my.cnf files. You can ignore these by doing:

      shell> /usr/bin/mysql_install_db --defaults-file=~/.my.cnf

      You can also try to start the mysqld daemon with:

      shell> /usr/libexec/mysqld --skip-grant-tables --general-log &

      and use the command line tool /usr/bin/mysql
      to connect to the mysql database and look at the grant tables:

      shell> /usr/bin/mysql -u root mysql
      mysql> show tables;

      Try 'mysqld --help' if you have problems with paths. Using
      --general-log gives you a log in /var/lib/mysql that may be helpful.
