Such a great tutorial. Thank you.
Would you please make a video for starting mariadb as a service similar to sudo systemctl start mariadb?
While going from scratch at Ubuntu 20.04 LTS used command (at 2:57 installing packages) is very helpful:
sudo apt install build-essential libncurses5-dev gnutls-dev bison -y
Actually without parameters it will not run all tests, but some default set of test suites.
