Re: Help, Mysql (MariaDB?) not starting after upgrading Xubuntu to 20.04

I can run dpkg tomorrow if you need the output. But I know it's mysql 5.7, and no mariadb.

Re: Help, Mysql (MariaDB?) not starting after upgrading Xubuntu to 20.04

Current state: I upgraded MythTV to 31. Checked everything out, works, made a backup. Ran another update, let it update everything for 19.04. Checked it out and made a backup. Next problem: To upgrade OS to 20.04, I have to upgrade to 19.10 first, right? When I begin the upgrade to 19.10 and look at...

Re: Help, Mysql (MariaDB?) not starting after upgrading Xubuntu to 20.04

Timeshift restore worked. I'm back on Xubuntu 19.03 / MythTV 30. I watched a few videos on Timeshift restores, and saw that once you start the restore, it drops to a console, then automatically reboots when finished. That wasn't clear from documentation/descriptions I'd seen, so I was worried the re...

Re: Help, Mysql (MariaDB?) not starting after upgrading Xubuntu to 20.04

I will check that tomorrow. Giving up for the night before I make more of a mess.

One question: Anybody familiar with Timeshift? Can it restore a snapshot from an earlier version of the OS? I have a snapshot from today, just before I started upgrading. What happens to files in use?

Ugh. The database dies after a while. Guess I'll be missing some recordings.

Re: Help, Mysql (MariaDB?) not starting after upgrading Xubuntu to 20.04

After rebooting, I see MariaDB is running. (Checked the welcome message. Not MySQL anymore) But mythbackend is not running. If I run sudo systemctl restart mythtv-backend.service It starts the backend (after about 5 minutes) but has "broken" MariaDB (can't connect.) So I reboot again, and this time ...

Help, Mysql (MariaDB?) not starting after upgrading Xubuntu to 20.04

For various reasons I had to update my OS. Was on Xubuntu 19.04, updated to 20.04. (19.04 was too old and even had to point to old-releases.ubuntu.com to get anywhere.) Afterward, mythtv isn't starting correctly. Mysql isn't starting either. I'm thinking the update replaced mysql with mariadb. I tri...

Home made antenna?

Anybody made their own TV antenna(s)? I'm starting to experiment with that. There are so many designs to choose from, depending on what you want it to do. I'm using a single-tuner USB stick with software on my laptop or phone, so I can leave my current MythTV/antenna setup alone until I decide what ...

Re: Watch Recordings Page, background changing

Just be careful when doing all this that you don't disable the processing of metadata lookup jobs, but not disable metadata lookup job creation (in the rules, as stated) or your machine will not shut off automatically. It will put jobs in the queue that won't be processed and then always say there a...

mythwelcome vs new idle mode/screen

First let me say why I don't like the "new" way of not using mythwelcome but instead using only the idle mode/screen in mythfrontend. If I'm misunderstanding the idle mode/screen, and it can do what I want, please let me know. I have a shorter timeout for mythwelcome and a much longer timeout for my...

Don't know if it's related, but check if any jobs are hanging. (commercial flagging, metadata lookup.)

Re: Invoke tmdb3 via a script and pass tmdb id

Interesting. Before I started using the services, I had only been running mythutil --scanvideos. I found that for isos with a filename such as "Disc 1.iso" that they were being looked up and found a title of "Disco" with description, actors, etc. in French. I found that's actually a French movie. So...
