Good distro for mysql and samba?

Pretty simple. I've been using RPI with openelec as an smb server for my kodi devices. Its simple and very reliable.
Now I'd like to switch from openelec since I don't really use it for kodi. My needs are simple. I want it to continue to get the job done with smb but would also like it to run mysql for my kodi machines. My macbook all of a sudden stopped running mysql with the most recent update. I've been scrambling for a fix but the pi would be a better solution--hidden away, low powered, hardwired.
What's the best distro for this?
