#46 closed patch (wontfix)

make install should use the full path to ldconfig

Description

I compile Myth as a normal user, and then use sudo to run the make install step. But this doesn't quite work because /sbin isn't in my normal user's path (as it shouldn't be) and make install calls "ldconfig" without specifying the full path.

A trivial patch to mythfrontend.pro makes it use the full path so that "sudo make install" can work.

Patch to use full path to ldconfig

This can be solved by simply adding sbin to the path when sudo'ing. This patch could cause more problems. For instance where is ldconfig on MacOS X?
