Re: Kubuntu 19.10 upgrade breaks mysql/mariadb

It took a week for it to break again, but it's been almost a week now since the last attempt at fixing it, so, OK, it's solved (I hope).

Re: Kubuntu 19.10 upgrade breaks mysql/mariadb

mysql/mariadb stopped running again and would not start. I discovered that it had something to do with apparmor 'the AppArmor profile for /usr/sbin/mysqld is still loaded in the kernel' apparently see here https://askubuntu.com/questions/750604/why-does-mariadb-keep-dying-how-do-i-stop-it#comment197...

Re: Kubuntu 19.10 upgrade breaks mysql/mariadb

Thanks bill6502 I did check /var/log/mysql/error.log but it did not help much.

Eventually, after a bit more un-installing, purging of various dependencies and re-installing of mariadb and running 'sudo mysql_secure_installation' (at first that would not even run) I did get it working.

Re: Kubuntu 19.10 upgrade breaks mysql/mariadb

Re: Metadata lookup started failing (v30, Devuan Linux)

I have the same issue, however Metadata is not working on on machine with Kubuntu 19.04 but is working on another machine with Xubuntu 19.04. Both machines have identical versions of the packages python-future, python-requests, python-requests-cache, python-urllib3. Kubuntu dpkg -l python-future pyt...

Re: mythvideo metadata not finding correct TV shows

It is not clear why you have two backends.YOu can easily run two frontends off one backend and that works well. I have set up three PCs to be both backend and frontend all three have capture cards. The PC under the TV is my main frontend. My main PC that I use day to day has both frontend for occas...

mythvideo metadata not finding correct TV shows

mythvideo metadata is not finding the correct TV shows on my main backend/frontend machine, however on my main frontend/backend machine that I use connected to the TV the same shows find the correct metadata. So, rather than pressing M on my main backend/frontend machine after transcoding and copyin...

Re: Programme Guide Info, OTA or Schedules Direct

Since Atlas rejected us all I have stuck with OTA. I just have to make sure that I check for upcoming shows and movies every week instead now. One small niggle that I have is that there is often no episode and series listed correctly, sometimes it is in the description and I have scripted a way to e...

Re: Updating movie metadata

I take it that you have a lot of movies and TV series that have never been recorded or given metadata by Mythtv? and are just adding them to mythtv as videos now. Set them up as different storage directories, one at a time? Setup the movies storage directory first and then run "M" for the movies, th...
