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

bill6502, thanks for taking the time to look into this. I know it's not explicitly a MythTV problem, but the problems I had getting to this point could be related to depends (referring mostly to the mysql/mariadb issues, not sure about video yet.) Let me summarize where I started. Last July or so, I...

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

This is very frustrating. No idea how to fix this. At this point it's not a MythTV problem specifically, because other programs also crash playing video, that worked fine before. mpv crashes, I think it uses hardware acceleration. vlc crashes, even when I disable acceleration. chrome works for strea...

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

OK, it's got to be related to video, drivers or codecs or something. Both VLC and MPV crash when trying to play a video that worked fine before the upgrade. mpv says: [ffmpeg] AVHWDeviceContext: Failed to query surface attributes: 20 (the requested function is not implemented).

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

As of this morning, I see the system is starting up on schedule, recording, and shutting down afterward. So I'm not missing any recordings, I just can't watch them until I fix mythfrontend.

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

Yes, MySQL 8.0 can be installed in *buntu 19.10. I did it. Seemed to "hang" for about 5 minutes at 86 percent, but eventually finished. Without explicitly installing MySQL 8 first, upgrade to 20.04 still wants to replace mysql with mariadb and uninstall mythtv. I got everything working on 19.10 + My...

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

So the reason I had held the mysql package was to see if that would prevent the upgrade from 19.4 to 19.10 from replacing mysql with mariadb. But we wanted to watch something before I could run the upgrade and I forgot it was held when I initially ran dpkg to get the output. So now I've just upgrade...

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

I wasn't holding any package when I tried upgrading, any time. I only held that yesterday but never tried upgrading while it was held. I have to upgrade to 19.10 first, before 20.04. And when I start upgrading to 19.10 and look at details before clicking start, it wants to uninstall mysql 5.7 and in...

Oh! I forgot I had added a hold on mysql 5.7 before I ran that. (Added after the problems described earlier.) I've since removed the hold, and it shows ii instead of hi... sudo dpkg -l *mysql-server* *mariadb-server* Desired=Unknown/Install/Remove/Purge/Hold | Status=Not/Inst/Conf-files/Unpacked/hal...

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 ...
