USB: /minimyth mounted *after* it looks for the .conf file!

Post by goofygrin » Fri Mar 21, 2008 7:31 am

I used to be able to boot minimyth, but I never could get my remote to work. Now I've got a different remote, so I loaded my USB stick up with the latest stable and now it can't ever find minimyth.conf.

/var/log/messages:

Code: Select all

My minimyth directory exists and everything, it's just that it's not mounted until too late!

Is there something I can do? (other than setup a tftpd server?)

It appears there is a bug. For now, adding MM_MINIMYTH_BOOT_URL=file:/minimyth/ to your boot line should work around the bug.
MiniMyth running on an Acer ApireRevo 3610 and a Zotac ZBOX-ID80-U. Find out more at my MythTV page.

Thanks Pablo, that got me over that hump.

I'm using the .20 latest since my backend is still .20 and when I try and play an HD video using XvMC I get a black screen (and the CPU goes to 100%). I'm not using a very powerful CPU, but it used to work. I'll keep playing with it.

Is there a place where the myth log is stored?

The remote works great though!

Actually got it to work. (had to set everything related to video playback to "auto" and it worked).

Thanks again!
