#11633 closed Bug Report - General (fixed)

mythfilldatabase no longer being run by mythbackend

Reported by: Rick Scott <rwscott@…> Owned by: Raymond Wagner
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.27
Component: MythTV - General Version: Master Head
Severity: medium Keywords: mythbackend mythfilldatabase
Cc: rwscott@… Ticket locked: no


The last day mythbackend successfully ran mythfilldatabase was Jun 15 2013. I did not notice this until I was down to "1 day of listing data available". I have been tracking master relatively closely. This problem is in master as of Jun 30 2013.

mythbackend seems to create the child process for mythfilldatabase, but mythfilldatabase never creates a log file. The child process lasts for about 0.1 second. Running the mythfilldatabase command, as shown in the log, takes about 2 minutes to run, produces a log file, and successfully updates the listings.

The log also show several segfaults of mythpreviewgen :(

It seems that one of the recents updates now makes it mandatory to give the full pathname to mythfilldatabase ...

In b561603c3c71ca875ea7af0262c96e21dfb4e98b/mythtv:

Force mythfilldatabase to run from install PREFIX.

This reverts behavior following 6122951dae46d96 to force the full path
of mythfilldatabase to be absolute, based off the stored install PREFIX,
rather than relying on the binary to show up in the environment's binary

Fixes #11633
