#11696 closed Bug Report - General (Invalid)

backend does not recognize valid password: no GUI

Reported by: robert.peake@… Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: unknown
Component: MythTV - General Version: 0.26-fixes
Severity: high Keywords: backend password setup dialog
Cc: Ticket locked: no


Version: mythtv 2:2.0.26+fixes.20121118.340ubuntu1 Ubuntu 13.04 64-bit AMD Phenom II x6 1090T

Dialog that appears after starting setup asks for "current login password," presumably the linux user password. However, using the logged-in system administrator password results in the message "Incorrect password... try again." The same result is achieved by using the current user's mythtv MySQL password and the mythtv MySQL password (85ctLXIf). These passwords have all been verified using MySQL Workbench. Attempting to bypass the dialog by selecting cancel results in the MythTV Setup Terminal, not the familiar GUI.

There is no way to access the backend setup.

This sounds like a Mythbuntu or Ubuntu issue. MythTV itself does not ask for login passwords. Please ask the Mythbuntu/Ubuntu? team for help.

FYI: Should anyone encounter this problem.

After further experimentation, starting setup from XTerm using: sudo /usr/bin/mythtv-setup successfully starts the GUI. The notice that the backend processes must be closed appears, but no password request dialog is displayed.
