Re: Building Mythtv 31.x on Catalina

... 6) The '--extra-cflags="-fno-stack-check" --extra-cxxflags="-fno-stack-check" ' is new to me. How did you determine this? What happens without? I got these out of the ffmpeg trac. Basically compiling the latest ffmpeg causes similar "stack_not_16_byte_aligned_error" (trac.ffmpeg.org/ticket/8073...

Re: Interest in mythweb cleanup?

It is your 'itch to scratch' but have you considered investing your time in adding missing features to WebFrontend, instead?

https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/WebFrontend

MythWeb's direct access to the database drags against ongoing development of core Myth functionality.

XMLTV on macOS via MacPorts

Just in case you were interested, the XMLTV suite of programs to download, process and store television listings is now available through MacPorts: https://ports.macports.org/port/xmltv/summary Once MacPorts is installed, you can install XMLTV with sudo port install xmltv Sooner or later, the nearly...

Re: Building Mythtv 31 with Ansible

Do MythGame, MythBrowser and MythNews actually work? AFAICT none of the games work on the Mac. Pretty sure MythBrowser was badly broken in previous versions. And MythNews depended on MythBrowser. Even MythWeather has been broken for long stretches before anybody reported it. With so many weather app...

Re: Building Mythtv 31 with Ansible

I'd forgotten about WarpMe's version of the packaging script. That's probably a better reference: https://github.com/warpme/mythv-osx-build-script The official packaging script served a couple of purposes but a prime one was to let a Mac-based MythTV developer do incremental builds and test on OS X....

Re: Building Mythtv 31 with Ansible

Yes, the one here: https://github.com/MythTV/packaging/tree/master/OSX/build Note that a key difference is that it assumes the user will download a Mac installer from the Qt project to obtain their copy of all the required Qt stuff. The script also downloads and installs all the necessary dependenci...

Re: Looking for OSX MythTV 31 frontend pre-built binary

BTW, the regular cp command (is that what you tried?) won't work. A macOS application is a special kind of folder (directory) containing numerous files that make up the application.

Re: Looking for OSX MythTV 31 frontend pre-built binary

You have to open a Finder window showing the contents of the dmg. If you right-click on the MythFrontend application, you should be able to choose Get Info and it will tell you that the Kind is Application, etc. This will confirm you've got the right thing. Dismiss that window and then drag and drop...

Re: Building Mythtv 31 with Ansible

I'm not sure. I have an old bundled app hanging around that was prepared with the official packaging script (0.25). In that, the libs are all converted to framewords but maybe this helps...

Re: Mythfrontend playback on quarter screen

I'd call it a band-aid; not a solution. I think some code must need tweaking to account for high-dpi screens on macOS. What those tweaks are, I have no idea.

Re: Mythfrontend playback on quarter screen

Have you tried changing settings in Mac System Preferences > Displays. Maybe select one of the Scaled settings and re-launch MFE. See: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202471 The support doc has a section on Using Apps with a Retina Display. Apparently there is an option in each app's Info box, "Op...

Re: [Solved] Building Mythtv 31.x on Catalina

Is this the X11 missing item you're mentioning? ld: warning: directory not found for option '-L/opt/X11/lib' Myth on macOS shouldn't need X11 at all. I think this is just an extraneous linker option that has crept in. Strangely, I checked on the 31/fixes buildbot and it does not seem to report this ...

Re: [Solved] Building Mythtv 31.x on Catalina

I saw the new thread. Symptoms are different than I previously saw but this is 2 years later. From the log, I noticed that Myth is complaining about a missing font. I'm not quite sure where it would need to be installed in the app bundle, but Dejavu is available from MacPorts if you want: https://po...

Re: [Solved] Building Mythtv 31.x on Catalina

That too would be a markk issue. I would expect he'd want a mythfrontend log, probably with '-v playback'. Maybe the code needs a tweak to deal with Retina screens. BTW, when I bashed my head 1.5 years ago trying to make version 29 work, there were problems with only 1/4 of the screen being displaye...
