“This package build depends on libmysqlclient-dev. It should instead build-depend on default-libmysqlclient-dev metapackage, and end up having the run-time dependency of the libmysqlclient implementation Debian has chosen to use, currently MariaDB instead of Oracle MySQL.”
See #845905 – ruby-dataobjects-mysql: switch to build depend on the metapackage default-libmysqlclient-devIt’s nice to see Debian on the home-stretch building the next release of GNU/Linux. They are not only providing MariaDB but also making it the default for most packages’ dependencies. I like that, freedom from tyrants is a good thing.

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. Now that I'm retired I still use GNU/Linux on every computer in my home except the smartphones which run Android/Linux.
Lately, I've been giving lots of thought to the world I inherited and which I will leave to my descendants. I'm planting grass, trees, flowers and vegetables in my large lot and I've ordered a Solo EV. I plan to charge my Solo by means of a tracking solar array. Life is good if you have a purpose. I do.
