Hi everyone,

I'm attempting to set up a new Myth system on AlmaLinux (A RHEL 8 
clone). I'm getting errors like this from DNF

  Problem 1: package mythtv-31.0-19.158.20210629git0680b37c68.el8.x86_64 
requires mariadb, but none of the providers can be installed
   - package mariadb-3:10.3.28-1.module_el8.3.0+2177+7adc332a.x86_64 
conflicts with mysql provided by 
   - package mysql-8.0.21-1.module_el8.3.0+2049+47abd494.x86_64 
conflicts with mariadb provided by 
   - package 
mythtv-frontend-31.0-19.158.20210629git0680b37c68.el8.x86_64 requires 
mysql(x86-64) >= 5, but none of the providers can be installed
   - conflicting requests
   - package mariadb-3:10.5.9-1.module_el8.4.0+2357+88cd7ba1.x86_64 is 
filtered out by modular filtering

I only have mariadb on the machine at the moment.

I don't understand why its saying that the frontend needs mysql?

I have EPEL and RPMFusion repo's configured.

It seems that both mysql and mariadb are in Alma's Appstream repo.

If I'm reading it right, the spec file appears to require a few of the 
mysql modules.

Any suggestions most welcome.
