I just installed mariadb-server 10.1 and tried a series of things and could
not get it to work. So once again I yum undo-ed to uninstall

So if I am understanding correctly, tomorrow I can reinstall
mariadb-server, my already running process will continue to run (as it
does), and by opening isql a new instance of unixodbc, mysql-connector...
the whole linkage chain. should be established so I can hopefully figure
out what is happening?

I'll also look around in yum's history  to see if the is some old component
of mysql or mariaclient not getting removed...

What is the likelihood of yum not identifying a prerequisite?

Quitting for now. That is enough of my time given to work for one night!
