Problem booting when MM_MEDIA_DVD is set

Post by pleeke » Wed Oct 01, 2008 9:04 am

Pablo,


I've noticed an issue when booting minimyth r3973 (the same exact config works in minimyth58b3). If I set;
MM_MEDIA_DVD_RIP_MOUNTPOINT='/data/tmp'
MM_MEDIA_DVD_RIP_URL=nfs://192.168.0.10/data/tmp
Then i get this error when booting;
error: 'mtd' not found.

I don't have MM_INIT_TYPE set on the boot line, so assume I'm using the 'sh' based boot scripts still.

Removing the two MM_MEDIA_DVD lines from minimyth.conf and it all boots fine. Not a real problem as I no longer use the frontend to rip dvds, but thought I'd mention it.


Thanks
Peter

Thanks.

As there is no r3973 yet, I assume you are using r3793. If this is the case, then the init scripts are defaulting to perl rather than sh.

I am able to reproduce the problem using the perl init scripts. There is a bug in mythtv.pm (not to mention MiniMyth.pm). I will include the fixes in the next test build (59b4).

This should be fixed in 59b4. Could you let me know whether or not it works for you?

Pablo,

Yes 59b5 works fine when booting with perl & setting the DVD_RIP options in minimyth.conf.

Have noticed an issue though, with a perl boot my lcd display is not detected/ lcdproc is not started. With a 'sh' boot using same minimyth s/w version (59b5) & minimyth cfg it works ok. I'll look into this over the next few days to see if I can figure out whats going on.


Thanks
Peter

That would be a bug resulting from a cut-and-paste error. I have made the change and it will be in the next test build (59b6). As I do not have an LCD device, I cannot test it.
