New Question: MariaDB Installation error



A new question has been asked in "MariaDB FAQ" by palash.harchandani93_43595. Please answer it at http://mariadb.com/kb/en/mariadb-installation-error/ as the person asking the question may not be subscribed to the mailing list.

I am getting error with ibdata1 auto extending of the files when running mysql_install_db and it fills the file with zeroes. But when i delete the ibdata and run the mysql_install_db again everything goes fine.

Also the size in my.cnf file is innodb_data_file_path = ibdata1:100M:autoextend 

InnoDB: Could not open or create the system tablespace. If you tried to add new data files to the system tablespace, and it failed here, you should now edit innodb_data_file_path in my.cnf back to what it was, and remove the new ibdata files InnoDB created in this failed attempt. InnoDB only wrote those files full of zeros, but did not yet use them in any way. But be careful: do not remove old data files which contain your precious data!

How exactly to resolve the error?
