preventing mythtv.cnf updates??

Post by marcw » Fri Mar 05, 2021 2:32 am

In the short period I've had my stand alone v.31 BE running, every single myth update (3 so far) has updated my /etc/mysql/conf.d/mythtv.cnf file and apt update shouldn't be doing that. The updates insist on commenting the first line like this:

[mysqld]
#bind-address=0.0.0.0
max_connections=100

So after each update I have to go back and uncomment that line or myth can't connect to the database. How do I prevent that file from being "updated"?

Change the bind address from 0.0.0.0 (any IPv4 addresses) to :: (any IPv4 or IPv6 addresses).

I'm not sure why more folks aren't finding this. Or, maybe they are just dealing with it and not
reporting.

In any case, the only check I see happens when ^bind-address=0.0.0.0$ is found
and it gets commented out. But there is supposed to be a prompt (popup) that
asks if remote connections are to be allowed.
