I'm new to maria, coming from mysql, and I'm trying to run the mysql_install_db program to create the new databases. This is what i'm executing as root: /usr/bin/mysql_install_db --user=mysql --datadir=/var/lib/mysql --basedir=/usr --force I've tried it with and without the force option. I always get the same error: ERROR: 1005 Can't create table `mysql`.`innodb_table_stats` (errno: 165 "Table is read only") 160114 11:35:10 [ERROR] Aborting
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the help... i got fed up with trying to guess what was causing it. it was a yum install by a coworker. I removed the packages and reinstall with the binaries. What worked fine. Thanks for the suggestions... I think it had to do with the my.cnf that was created with the yum. Thanks for all the help...
