Launching MythArchive crashes frontend and backend

Description

The following applies to svn frontend, backend, and mytharchive (current as of 11 AM US Central time, 26 July 2006).

I am able to consistently crash the frontend and backend by attempting to launch Optical Disks -> Archive Files -> Find Files To Archive.

I did a dist-clean and uninstall of frontend, backend, and mytharchive, then recompiled all three parts with debugging options turned on.

Attached are the gdb output and mythfrontend and backend logs created when I ran both the backend and the frontend via gdb.

Works for me! Just did a complete reinstall of myth and mytharchive to be sure and everything worked fine apart from a few missing image warnings.

There's a few strange entries in the logs like in the mythbackend log where it looses the connection to the mysql server? Also it looks like nvram-wakeup was invoked to set the next wakup time in the BIOS. Are you sure mythbackend wasn't just shutdown because your system was idle?

I think what I would do first would be to reinstall both myth and mytharchive. Do a make clean for myth and re-run configure then make, make install _before_ trying to compile mytharchive. Do the same make clean, configure, make, make install for mytharchive. Make sure you use the same install prefix for both. Make sure there are no errors in the compiler and linker output.

If after all that it still doesn't work re-open the ticket and we'll see if we can trackdown why :-)

As per instructions above, I did a make uninstall and make clean of mytharchive, mythplugins, myththemes, and mythtv. I then did an svn update of mytharchive, mythplugins, myththemes, and mythtv.

I then did a configure, make, make install of mythtv. I then did a configure, make, make install of mytharchive. I then did a configure, make, make install of myththemes.

I then performed three separate attempts to use mytharchive. All three attempts failed. I am attaching the gdb and myth logs for all three attempts.

As an additional note:

When this ticket was initially opened, I was running mythbackend as root. In the three attempts mentioned above, I ran mythbackend and mythfrontend as mythtv.

Additional note:

I am running this on Fedora Core 5.

I see you are installing to /applications/mythtv I'm wondering if this could be the root of the problem have you perhaps installed myth before in another location /usr or /usr/local?

It could be your running applications from one setup and the run time linker is using libraries from another.

Marking as worksforme. This looks like a problem with the OP's setup not with MythArchive?.
