      Description

      For various reasons I am encountering errors when attempting to setup a database (Note, those problems are not the subject of this bug)

      However, the error message suggests running file /usr/scripts/mysqlbug which does not exist (neither does directory /usr/scripts)

      Installation was from APT repository http://mirror.aarnet.edu.au/pub/MariaDB/repo/10.0/debian version 10.0.8+maria-1~wheezy, as per the instructions at https://downloads.mariadb.org/mariadb/repositories/#mirror=aarnet_pty_ltd&distro=Debian&distro_release=wheezy&version=10.0

      I eventually found the file at /usr/bin/mysqlbug provided by mariadb-client-10.0

      Example:

      The problem could be conflicting information in an external
      my.cnf files. You can ignore these by doing:
      
          shell> /scripts/mysql_install_db --defaults-file=~/.my.cnf
      
      You can also try to start the mysqld daemon with:
      
          shell> /usr/sbin/mysqld --skip-grant --general-log &
      
      and use the command line tool /usr/bin/mysql
      to connect to the mysql database and look at the grant tables:
      
          shell> /usr/bin/mysql -u root mysql
          mysql> show tables
      
      Try 'mysqld --help' if you have problems with paths.  Using
      --general-log gives you a log in /var/lib/mysql that may be helpful.
