#37 closed patch (fixed)

mythgallery should use myth_system instead of system

mythgallery uses system("mplayer ...") to generate thumbnails for movie files.

This appears to cause some tty-related hangs from not closing stdin, etc. Recovering requires killing -9 mythfrontend, etc., which still leaves behind mplayer as a zombie.

Replacing these calls with myth_system makes the problem go away (and yields properly-generated thumbnails for movie files).

Forget what I said about the zombies, they were actually wedged by gdb :).

But using system() still leaves mplayer hung waiting for stdin, and still requires kill -9 to recover.

(I've verified that the thumbgallery.cpp fix works. The iconview.cpp changes are just for good measure; they shouldn't hurt, right?)
