#13128 closed Patch - Bug Fix (fixed)

ttvdb/tmdb3 scripts fail with "no such file or directory" error

Reported by: David Hampton <mythtv@…> Owned by: David Hampton
Priority: minor Milestone: 29.1
Component: MythTV - General Version: v29.0
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


The ttvdb and tmdb3 scripts don't create the configuration directory, they only create their final cache directory. This causes them to fail in cases where the frontend is normally run as a unique "mythtv" user id and they are running the script as their own user id. Having them create all directories up to the final cache directory solves this problem.

Reported against 29, but also affects 0.28 and master.

In ae0093aa69845cfa790db935d0802162c6f9ea7e/mythtv:

Create all directories leading to the ttvdb/tmdb3 cache files.

With this change, MythTv? will create all directories leading up to the
cache file, instead of only creating the final directory. This will
solve some recent problems on the mailing list where the ttvdb/tmdb3
scripts would work in some scenarios and fail in others.
