MariaDB packages provide corresponding symbols with name mysql. It means that as soon as any package requires mysql, yum will actually choose mariadb package to be installed.

Prerequisities

Remove all mariadb packages (it will remove also all dependencies, so consider doing this step carefully):

# yum remove 'mariadb*'

Steps

This task consists from several sub-tasks. After every sub-task you'll need to remove installed packages (like described in Prerequisites section above).

Try install mysql-server package:

# yum install mysql-server

Expected result: packages mariadb-server mariadb-libs and mariadb will be installed.

Try install perl-DBD-MySQL package:

# yum install perl-DBD-MySQL

Expected result: packages perl-DBD-MySQL and mariadb-libs will be installed.

Updating perl-DBD-MySQL from testing repository
When you are using current Fedora 19 stable repository, you should install perl-DBD-MySQL package from the testing repository (available here), because the previous build (currently in Fedora 19 stable repository) included wrong dependencies. It has been fixed, but the new build has not got to stable repository yet.

Try install akonadi-mysql package:

# yum install akonadi-mysql

Expected result: packages akonadi-mysql, mariadb-server, mariadb and mariadb-libs will be installed.
