Can themes be fetched from compact flash boot device?

Post by joetv » Tue Aug 02, 2011 3:23 am

I'm unable to boot because I cannot fetch theme file MythCenter.sfs. Here is the snippet from end of /var/log/mesages:

Code: Select all

Aug  1 18:59:18 (none) local0.info minimyth: starting LCD/VFD ...
Aug  1 18:59:18 (none) local0.info minimyth: configuring MythTV ...
Aug  1 18:59:18 (none) local0.info minimyth: fetching 'hunt:themes/MythCenter.sfs': local file will be '/initrd/rw/loopfs/~usr~share~mythtv~themes~MythCenter/image.sfs'.
Aug  1 18:59:18 (none) local0.info minimyth: fetching 'hunt:themes/MythCenter.sfs': URL 'file://minimyth/themes/MythCenter.sfs' not fetched (it may not exist).
Aug  1 18:59:18 (none) local0.info minimyth: fetching 'hunt:themes/MythCenter.sfs': URL 'file://minimyth/conf/joetvfe/themes/MythCenter.sfs' not fetched (it may not exist).
Aug  1 18:59:18 (none) local0.info minimyth: fetching 'hunt:themes/MythCenter.sfs': URL 'file://minimyth/conf/default/themes/MythCenter.sfs' not fetched (it may not exist).
Aug  1 18:59:18 (none) local0.err minimyth: mount of 'MM_THEME_URL=hunt:themes/MythCenter.sfs' failed.
Aug  1 18:59:19 (none) local0.info minimyth: init failed. check '/var/log/messages' for further details.
Aug  2 01:59:19 (none) daemon.info init: no more processes left in this runlevel
But the file does exist:

Code: Select all

root@joetvfe:~ # ls -l /minimyth/themes/MythCenter.sfs
-rw-rw-rw-    1 root     root       1609728 Aug  1 11:55 /minimyth/themes/MythCenter.sfs
I have what I thought was a very simple configuration. Here's my minimyth.conf settings that differ from the default:

Code: Select all

root@joetvfe:~ # grep -v ^# /minimyth/conf/default/minimyth.conf

MM_MINIMYTH_BOOT_URL='file://minimyth/'

MM_DHCP_HOST_NAME='joetvfe'
MM_DHCP_NTP_SERVERS='0.pool.ntp.org 1.pool.ntp.org 2.pool.ntp.org'
MM_DHCP_TCODE='America/Phoenix'

MM_X_OUTPUT_VGA='auto'

MM_MASTER_SERVER='192.168.10.21'

MM_THEME_NAME='MythCenter'

MM_LIRC_DRIVER='usb_uirt_raw'
MM_LIRC_DEVICE='/dev/ttyUSB0'
Any advice/tips/counseling greatly appreciated. My backend is busy recording but I cannot watch them.

Thanks
Joe

[RESOLVED] Adding this to config file solved it:
MM_THEME_URL='file:/minimyth/themes/MythCenter.sfs'
This is not the same as the default search path of file://minimyth/themes/MythCenter.sfs
This took me straight to the scene of the next crash...off to another forum.
