Sorry, my bad: of course I should have started mysqld, not mysql.....

besides that you should notice when you try to start a non-existing service what is really bad: you randomly mix "mysqld", "mysql" and "mariadb" as service name in your posts

in the worst case they are really existing but doing different things

Starting 10.7.7 works, and indeed recreates ib_logfile0. All my databases are there, no corruption AFAICS.

Shut it down with kill -15, and the logfile reports a normal shutdown

you shouldn't use "kill" at all fro shutdown when you start something as systemd-unit

Hi Reindl,

I  started the he 10.7.7 version not through systemd, but by issuing /usr/local/mariadb-10.7.7-linux-systemd-x86_64/bin/mysqld in the terminal, as advised earlier in this conversation. This way I managed to get a working db-server, and access to my data.

I stopped that by SIGQUIT, and this gives a correct shutdown.

After that, I tried to start the version that comes with the OS (OpenSuse Thumbleweed) trough systemctl start mariadb, without success.

Hope this clarifies the steps taken.

regards, Jogchum
