Hi kataka
...  But why did installing tce-load -wi did not achieve this?
The only reasons I can think of are:
You accidentally left out the  i  switch (tce-load -w).
While typing the  i  switch you stumbled and added an  l  switch (tce-load -wil).
While typing the  i  switch you missed and added an  o  switch instead (tce-load -wo).

hi thank you, no i'm pretty sure typed -wi.. and i tried several times. anyway thanks to Andy i know -client is not necessary ;-/
i receive mostly socket error now, i configured /tmp/mysql.sock but it seems i did that in the wrong place.
what do you do after booting? how do you login to mysql cli? (yesterday i logged in but it was late in the day and i forgot what i tried)

Oracle

I used mariadb for a month or two, but I was an Oracle DBA for many years and I soon realized mariadb was to databases what windows is to operating systems. I switched to Postgresql and things just started working like they should, like when I switched to Linux (in the mid '90s).

I maintain the PHP, Apache, and Nginx extensions also, and I test them against mariadb, Postgresql, MS SQL Server, and Oracle on both 32 and 64 bit.

speaking of Oracle:
https://developers.slashdot.org/story/22/06/13/0231250/is-oracles-database-dominance-being-eroded-by-cloud-first-rivals

snippet/quote from slashdot story:
"The entire profit of the company comes from Oracle database maintenance," he said. With each contract negotiation, "you go from paying $20 million a year, to $30 million a year, to paying $50 million a year."

What you get with Oracle is support that nobody else matches, so it makes sense that they get their money from maintenance. The database software doesn't have an install or runtime license. if you ever need to call tech support a human answers when the phone rings and you get routed to a person who can answer questions and solve your problem without a script. Turnaround for bug fixes is a few days. The documentation is excellent. Sure, it's always possible to go with someone else to save money, as long as you're OK with getting what you pay for.

How ORACLE comes in a MariaDB topic especially as an argument to use another DB or referring to WINDOWS? Do not understand :(
