mythfrontend SEGV when starting with an empty database

Reported by: Lawrence Rust <lvr@…> Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: MythTV - General Version: 0.25-fixes
Severity: medium Keywords: mythfrontend empty database
Cc: Ticket locked: no


Mythfrontend aborts with a SEGV when starting with a new database.

Steps to reproduce:

  • Create an empty database: e.g. mysql -u root -p -e"DROP DATABASE IF EXISTS test; CREATE DATABASE IF NOT EXISTS test; GRANT ALL ON test.* TO myth@"%" IDENTIFIED BY "myth"; FLUSH PRIVILEGES;"
  • Create mysql.txt file specifying host and database just created
  • Run mythtv-setup and create a minimal setup
  • Run mythbackend
  • Run mythfrontend, GUI appears but SEGV occurs immediately. Repeated attempts to start the fe all end with a SEGV.

Does it also SEGV with --upgrade-schema ?

Sorry, scratch this. It was the MythVideo? plugin leftover from 0.24 that was causing the crash. I emptied the installation directory, re-installed and all went smoothly.
