#33 closed patch (fixed)

SIGHUP log rotation

Reported by: Robert Tsai <rtsai1111> Owned by: Isaac Richards

Component: mythtv Version: head
Severity: low Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


This patch is taken from

It adds a SIGHUP handler to mythbackend for rotating logfiles in response to a SIGHUP, so that a logrotate.d "postrotate" script can do:

kill cat /var/run/

without worrying about whether or not restarting mythbackend will interrupt any recordings, etc.

It looks like 'errno' and 'EINTR' are not defined which is preventing compiling of main.cpp (at least as of 9PM EST July 2nd, 2005). I will try to re-open this ticket just to make sure this is checked.
