Can I use Mariadb as back-end for LO Base or must it be MySQL? For

Looks like it's possible -
but I've never done it.


I, too, am faced with switching to Mariadb, since the latest Slackware Linux has switched from MySQL to Mariadb. I looked on the Mariadb website and they are claiming full compatibility with everything, including the connectors. I have yet to confirm that, but I am hopeful. I did notice that Mariadb even goes so far as to keep the MySQL utility program names, such as mysql_install_db. So even existing MySQL scripts should work with Mariadb. That is pretty compatible.
Good luck.
