#12563 closed Patch - Bug Fix (Fixed)

systemd mythtv-backend.service file update to prevent double logging

Reported by: charles.bovy@… Owned by: Stuart Auchterlonie
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.28
Component: Packaging Version: Master Head
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


the mythtv-backend.service (for deb) is missing a statement to prevent logging to console. Logs to console are logged to /var/log/syslog, and mythbackend syslogs are logged to /var/log/mythtv/mythbackend.log

There is the position that logging to syslog is the wrong way to go and that it is legacy thinking, and that instead console logging to/via journald is the way forward for systemd. However, I have no dog in the systemd discussion/fight on debian.

ok, didn't know. The situation now (on Mythbuntu) is that loglines end up twice on disk, which is not good at all. So probably more a packaging thing than MythTV related.

I believe this has already been taken care of in the unit file which is already in the packaging repository as it now include --quiet on the mythbackend command line

ExecStart=/usr/bin/mythbackend --quiet --syslog local7 $ADDITIONAL_ARGS

Charles can you comment?
