Description Karel Volný 2019-03-15 15:56:07 UTC
Description of problem:
mysqld_safe --dry-run doesn't work as expected

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. dnf install -y mariadb-server
2. systemctl start mariadb
3. systemctl stop mariadb
4. mysqld_safe --dry-run

Actual results:
[root@host-8-250-109 ~]# mysqld_safe --dry-run
/usr/bin/mysqld_safe: line 932: return: can only `return' from a function or sourced script
[1]+  Stopped                 mysqld_safe --dry-run
[root@host-8-250-109 ~]# ps -ef | grep mysql
root      7196  6107  0 11:52 pts/0    00:00:00 /bin/sh /usr/bin/mysqld_safe --dry-run
mysql     7280  7196  0 11:52 pts/0    00:00:00 /usr/libexec/mysqld --basedir=/usr --datadir=/var/lib/mysql --plugin-dir=/usr/lib64/mariadb/plugin --user=mysql --log-error=/var/log/mariadb/mariadb.log --pid-file=/run/mariadb/ --socket=/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock

Expected results:
it returns to shell without mysqld running

Additional info:
# mysqld_safe --help | grep dry
  --dry-run                  Simulate the start to detect errors but don't start
