pid file could not be found


Hi there

I'm having a weird problem after a fresh installation of RHEL6 and MariaDB:

[root@server ~]# yum install MariaDB-10.1.1-centos6-x86_64-server.rpm MariaDB-10.1.1-centos6-x86_64-client.rpm MariaDB-10.1.1-centos6-x86_64-compat.rpm MariaDB-10.1.1-centos6-x86_64-common.rpm

[root@server ~]# /etc/init.d/mysql status
MySQL is not running                                       [FAILED]
[root@server ~]# /etc/init.d/mysql start
Starting MySQL.                                            [  OK  ]
[root@server ~]# /etc/init.d/mysql status
MySQL is running but PID file could not be found           [FAILED]

[root@spch9140 ~]# ls -al /var/lib/mysql/server.local-recover.pid
-rw-rw---- 1 mysql mysql 6 Nov 14 07:41 /var/lib/mysql/server.local-recover.pid

[root@server ~]# more /var/lib/mysql/server.local-recover.pid
[root@server ~]# ps aux | grep 25071
mysql    25071  0.0  2.9 795548 116980 pts/0   Sl   07:41   0:02 /usr/sbin/mysqld --basedir=/usr --datadir=/var/lib/mysql --plugin-dir=/usr/lib64/mysql/plugin --user=mysql --log-error=/var/lib/mysql/server.local.err --pid-file=/var/lib/mysql/server.local.pid --wsrep_recover --log_error=/var/lib/mysql/wsrep_recovery.U7vwNv --pid-file=/var/lib/mysql/server.local-recover.pid

Also tried version 10.0.14, same issue..
Putting 'pid-file' option into /etc/my.cnf.d/server.cnf doesn't help either :(

Anyone seen this too or have a suggestion?
