Comments - upgraded to MariaDB 10.0 but the systemctl status mariadb.service is not working? mysql command works instead?

Assuming that you are using Fedora, MariaDB can be installed either from MariaDB repository (, MariaDB-server), or from the "native" Fedora repository (mariadb-server). Packages from MariaDB repository install mysql.service, both for 5.5 and 10.0. Packages from Fedora repository install mysqld.service and its alias mariadb.service; but there is only MariaDB 5.5 available in the Fedora repo at the moment.

So, MariaDB programmers did not really remove anything service-related, but you would have mariadb.service deleted if you had mariadb-server (5.5) installed from the Fedora repo, and now installed 10.0 instead.
