could this be the issue?

https://archlinuxarm.org/forum/viewtopi ... 65&t=14690

though it comes back to the same as the previous link & 'setenv mesontimer "0"' followed by a reboot didn't seem to help

yes - edited /boot/boot.ini to switch off mesontimer (setenv mesontimer "0") & rebooted - :-(

maybe it'll work for fhals...

@nigelf , Heureka, you found it!

Edited my boot.ini and set
setenv mesontimer "0"

According to boot.ini this setting should disturb a smooth video playback.
After rebooting, Mariadb is back to work on my Odroid.

(Lighttpd quit working now, hopefully, this is another story)

Well done, thanks!

@fhals
maybe open a new post if there are further issues on other apps. Just to avoid to many issue in a single post.

Yes, I will if I can't get it back to work on myself.
Seems to be plugin-related, not mesontimer.
Thanks.

btw indeed MariaDB has errorg.log disabled by default now. I did a test installation on Buster and error.log is enabled :)
Good to know that behavior changed using Bullseye 8)

...& I can confirm that the mesontimer solution worked here too - i had simply forgotten to relink the databases
