Severity: medium Keywords:

It appears the myth music plugin is attempting to upgrade the schema of the database. The Backup runs but then the frontend appears to closeat which point mythbuntu restarts it in an never ending cycle.

I've not verfied it myself but heard from other sources that the service that restarts the frontend in MythBuntu? is pretty dumb and just keeps restarting it without checking the exit code to see if it should try to start it. That is nothing to do with MythTV though it's a problem with MythBuntu?.

When the frontend starts does it ask you if you want to update the MythMusic database schema or does it stop before that?

If you fix the location of the DB Backups storage group does it work?

CoreContext storagegroup.cpp:704 (FindNextDirMostFree) SG(DB Backups): FindNextDirMostFree: '/raid5/myth/dbbackups' does not exist!

Yeah it just blindly restarts as far as I know.

No Myth UI ever appears. I originally thought it was just not starting up.

My I am having some server issues at the moment and that array is down. It is successfully backing up to the fail back of /tmp I had dozen or so backups in there. If you want I can redirect that SG and try it again.

OK I was wondering if the backup was failing and the frontend just bailed out but it sounds like the backup completed OK.

Try starting the frontend in a console so we can see if it is crashing or just exiting.

If if just exits gracefully the exit code would be helpful to see why it exited.

echo $?

should print the exit code.

If it is crashing then if you can try to get a backtrace. Starting the frontend in gdb may give enough information to see what is happening.

There are more MythgBuntu? specific instructions here

Interesting, running it directly you get the schema upgrade prompt like you'd expect.

Resolution: Works for me
Status: newclosed

I suspect a bug with the MythBuntu? startup script. Maybe it doesn't like the fact the frontend can take a while to start up if the database needs to be backed up causing it to assume it crashed and tries to restart it leading to the infinite loop?
