#10125 closed Patch - Bug Fix (Won't Fix) incorrectly initialises series_name_override

Reported by: jamesremuscat@… Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: MythTV - General Version: 0.24-fixes
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


In current 0.24-fixes head, incorrectly initialises self.configseries_name_override? (expected to be an array) as a boolean.

Find attached a trivial patch that instead initialises it to an empty list.

I acknowledge that is disappearing in v0.25 but in the meantime this might be useful to anyone who's noticed the hourly jamu run starting to spam their logs.

Apologies, I've filed this under the wrong component (my eyes misread "mythvideo" for "mythweb"); Trac doesn't seem to want me to change it though.

This patch would not work consistently. Please attach an example of the "spam their logs". I am willing to correct the issue but am having problems reproducing the unwanted messages. FYI When there are values for "series_name_override" it is a dictionary "{}" and not a list "[]". There is code which would abort if "series_name_override" is initialized as a list.

My system is set up to run jamu hourly - /etc/cron.hourly/mythtv-frontend calls

su mythtv -c "/usr/bin/python /usr/share/mythtv/mythvideo/scripts/ -MW >> '/var/log/mythtv/jamu.log' 2>&1"

This was consistently returning with an exit code of 1, and root@ my machine was receiving hourly E-mail reports that

run-parts: /etc/cron.hourly/mythtv-frontend exited with return code 1

And in /etc/syslog:

Oct 26 21:17:01 basilisk CRON[7702]: (root) CMD ( cd / && run-parts --report /etc/cron.hourly) Oct 26 21:17:02 basilisk CRON[7701]: (CRON) error (grandchild #7702 failed with exit status 1)

Actually the output from "/var/log/mythtv/jamu.log" would tell me more than the exit code. I would like to determine why the exit code is "1" and I hope the "/var/log/mythtv/jamu.log" provides the answer.

I'm closing this one as MythTV has not shipped with JAMU in several releases.
