#10893 closed Bug Report - General (Won't Fix)

mythfrontend depend on X to show verbose options in console

Reported by: Kenni Lund [kenni a kelu dot dk] Owned by: Raymond Wagner
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.28.2
Component: MythTV - General Version: 0.25-fixes
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


As far as I remember, this is a regression in 0.25. Mythfrontend fails to display the list of verbose options when a X server isn't available, even though no X server should be needed.

[kenni@mediaserver ~]$ mythfrontend --verbose help
mythfrontend: cannot connect to X server 
[kenni@mediaserver ~]$ mythfrontend --help
mythfrontend version: fixes/0.25 [v0.25.1-59-g61e7a0e]

MythFrontend is the primary playback application for MythTV. It 
is used for playback of scheduled and live recordings, and management 
of recording rules.

Misc. Options:
-d OR --disable-autodiscovery    Prevent frontend from using UPnP autodiscovery.

Following the logging rewrite, processing of the verbose flag was lumped in with the rest of logging startup, which must occur after QApplication is inited, however, QApplication requires an accessible X server. Splitting it back out will require an ABI change, so I'm holding off until after the freeze.
