Compiling MythTV, no option to not build frontend?

Post by brichards42 » Sun Apr 11, 2021 12:44 am

I am compiling MythTV for a new backend but there doesn't seem to be an option in ./configure to not build the frontend also. --disable-frontend seems to have no effect.

Is there a reason why the frontend must be built as well?

Reading further, I guess it is intended you must always build both and just run what is needed.
Even on the Rasberry Pi.

Virtually all of the building time goes into the libraries which are used by both the front and back ends. There would be _very_ little savings to avoid building the frontend.
