I've been trying to reinstall MariaDB and have been encountering multiple issues,

$ yum install Mariadb-Galera-server

Error: Package: MariaDB-Galera-server-5.5.29-1.i386 (mariadb)
           Requires: galera
           Available: galera-23.2.4-1.rhel5.i386 (mariadb)
               galera = 23.2.4-1.rhel5
 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

there is a requirement that libssl.so.6 and libcrypto.ssl.6 are installed, these DO show up in my /lib64 and /lib though as linked items.

-rwxr-xr-x   1 root root  1356700 Nov 23  2010 libcrypto.so.0.9.8e
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root root       19 Jun 28 12:03 libcrypto.so.6 -> libcrypto.so.0.9.8e
-rwxr-xr-x.  1 root root   394272 Mar 18 14:22 libssl.so.1.0.1e
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root root       16 Jun 28 12:03 libssl.so.6 -> libssl.so.0.9.8e

-rwxr-xr-x    1 root root  1849680 Mar 18 14:21 libcrypto.so.1.0.1e
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root root       26 Jun 28 11:54 libcrypto.so.6 -> /lib64/libcrypto.so.1.0.1e
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root root   421712 Mar 18 14:21 libssl.so.1.0.1e
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root root       23 Jun 28 11:54 libssl.so.6 -> /lib64/libssl.so.1.0.1e

So the deps SHOULD be met, trying to $ yum install galera returns this

Resolving Dependencies
--> Running transaction check
---> Package galera.i386 0:23.2.4-1.rhel5 will be installed
--> Restarting Dependency Resolution with new changes.
--> Running transaction check
---> Package galera.i386 0:23.2.4-1.rhel5 will be installed
--> Finished Dependency Resolution

No errors? but no install either .... ?

lets try wget and rpm'ing the package instead I guess?

$ wget https://launchpad.net/galera/2.x/23.2.4/+download/galera-23.2.4-1.rhel5.x86_64.rpm
$ rpm -ivh galera-23.2.4-1.rhel5.x86_64.rpm

This issues the dreaded

error: Failed dependencies:
libcrypto.so.6()(64bit) is needed by galera-23.2.4-1.rhel5.x86_64
libssl.so.6()(64bit) is needed by galera-23.2.4-1.rhel5.x86_64

But we saw above these packages are here =( Whats going on?? Is openssl not installed?

$ yum install openssl

Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
Package 1:openssl-1.0.1e-4.fc18.x86_64 already installed and latest version
Nothing to do

Its there.... ??? wth Fedora?
