#12312 assigned Patch - Bug Fix

mythfilldatabase (SD/DD) does not honour $TMPDIR

Reported by: brian@… Owned by: sphery
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: MythTV - Mythfilldatabase Version: 0.27.4
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


The Schedules Direct grabber does not honour (i.e. use) $TMPDIR if it's set.

I will attach a patch that I *think* should do the trick. I only very very occasionally find myself C++ programming so it might be quite right. Constructive criticism welcomed.

No comment at all on this patch? Am I not following the correct process to submit a patch?

comment:2 Changed 6 years ago by gary.buhrmaster@…

btw, while I am not a dev, from a very cursory look, this patch does not appear to properly support Windows, which uses different environmental variables, and seems to override a mutable which may be (and is?) changed by other programs. And, does not address the explicit attempt to not rm the /tmp directory. Looks like more existing code evaluation work is needed to me before it is ready.
