Issue installing MariaDb under Ubuntu 64-bit 16.04.1
I'm currently trying to install MariaDb (from mariadb-10.1.21-linux-glibc_214-x86_64.tar) under Ubuntu 64-bit 16.04.1. They are both new installations, and as I'm going through the installation process, when I get to the point to run the ./scripts/mysql_install_db --user=mysql script, I get a failure right from the start. I get an error message that says it can't find the shared library, libaio.so.1. It doesn't create the my.cnf file, nothing.
What am I missing?

It seems that libaio package is missing on the system. You can install corresponding package with below command:-
sudo apt-get install libaio1 libaio-dev
