I am having an interesting problem.

Linux seems to boot fine.
The configuration file seems to work fine.
X seems to start fine (i get the X mouse pointer on the screen)
But mythfrontend never seems to start.

I have looked through all the log files and i cant seem to actually find any errors, it just seems to start X then close X and say no more processes in this runlevel.

Sending select for 192.168.1.201...

I suspect mythfrontend is crashing for some reason. If you telnet in as user 'minimyth' and run the command 'xinit', then do you see anything interesting?

Ahh, yes, thank you very much.

2008-03-13 07:55:27.574 Unexpected DB Schema version.  Waiting to see if DB is being upgraded.
2008-03-13 07:55:32.600 Timed out waiting.
2008-03-13 07:55:32.601 This version of MythTV requires an updated database schema. Please run mythtv-setup or mythbackend to update your database.
So it seems i will need to upgrade the backend for this version to work.


I hope there is an easy way of backing up the mythTV settings under mythbuntu, i really hate having to set everything up from scratch everytime i upgrade.

Thanks Pablo.

If you do not want to upgrade to MythTV 0.21, the same version of MiniMyth is built with MythTV 0.20 as well. You can find it at latest-0.20.

If you decide to upgrade your backend to MythTV 0.21, be sure to back up your database first. The upgrade to MythTV 0.21 will upgrade the database schema.

Also, the /var/log/udhcpc log does show a minor bug that should be harmless. I have checked in a fix. Therefore, it will be fixed in the next build.
