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:


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 (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

In any case, the only check I see happens when ^bind-address=$ 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.
