#12195 new Bug Report - General

mythwelcome removes startup block on shutdown

Reported by: timothymee@… Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.28.2
Component: MythTV - Mythwelcome & Mythshutdown Version: 0.27-fixes
Severity: medium Keywords: mythwelcome block shutdown
Cc: Ticket locked: no


In 0.26, I booted my PC to mythwelcome and it would stay there until I clicked on the Start Frontend button. In 0.27, I boot to mythwelcome and it automatically shuts down without clicking the Start Frontend button.

Mythbackend has setting "block before client connected" enabled. As part of startup programs, mythfrontend --service is executed. /etc/mythtv/session-settings has MYTHWELCOME=true set. Booting the PC causes mythwelcome screen to display. /var/log/mythbackend logs "Scheduler: Seem to be woken up by USER" and "Client is connected, removing startup block on shutdown". Mythwelcome connections should NOT cause the startup block to be removed. Since mythwelcome does not count as a client connection for shutdown purposes, mythbackend shuts down the system. The PC should not shutdown until I start the frontend. If I start the frontend and leave it running, the PC does not shutdown (as it should).

This was bothering me too. patch:

             LOG(VB_GENERAL, LOG_NOTICE, "Client is connected, removing startup block on shutdown");
             blockShutdown = false;

Should I make a gihub pull request?
