Installing MythTV on FreeBSD 11.1

Post by balanga »

Anyone tried installing MythTV on FreeBSD 11.1?

By the lack of traffic in this section I suspect not.

I tried the other day but never managed...

The FreeBSD wiki for MythTV only provides an outline.... I never managed to run mythtv-setup successfully.

Trying to build from ports, after many attempts resulted in:-

Try to set MAKE_JOBS_UNSAFE=yes and rebuild before reporting the failure to the maintainer.

Apparently there is no maintainer currently.

Hi balanga,

I was running it for a couple years until recently, when the freebsd port got completely messed up. The only workaround for me was to find another piece of hardware and setup a mythbuntu instance (which resolved so many issues I had with mythtv on freebsd).

To be completely honest with you, don't waste time on trying to get it working on freebsd. Took me 1,5 years to get it up & running and that was couple years ago, when the port still had a maintainer...

Sounds like an opportunity for someone to step up as maintainer!

Formerly the MacPorts guy.
