MythTV Backend Fix

Postby pjcrux » Thu Jul 01, 2010 8:57 pm

There is a upstream issue with MythTV 0.23-3 when upgrading using yum. the backend will not start after a reboot or a restart of the backend. Fix can be found at But to summarize:

you will need to change this /etc/init.d/mythbackend file. the options line was changed from:

OPTIONS="$OPTIONS --daemon --logfile --user ${MYTHBACKEND_USER} /var/log/mythtv/$prog.log --pidfile /var/run/$"


OPTIONS="$OPTIONS --daemon --logfile /var/log/mythtv/$prog.log --user ${MYTHBACKEND_USER} --pidfile /var/run/$"

then "service mythbackend restart" and you should be golden.
