#7297 closed enhancement (fixed)

Add an upstart script

I'm not sure how many distros are moving to upstart in the near future, but at least Ubuntu 9.10 and Fedora 12 are. They support using an upstart script that will keep the backend running / respawn it after a crash etc.

I'm attaching the upstart script we're using in Ubuntu. This gets installed into /etc/init/mythtv-backend.conf and a symlink is created in /etc/init.d/mythtv-backend to point to point to /lib/init/upstart-job.

That means that you can still use "service mythtv-backend restart" or "/etc/init.d/mythtv-backend restart" etc.

I'm not sure what kind of configure logic is needed to detect if the system is running upstart however.

(In [22801]) Add an upstart script to contrib/Linux/init_scripts/ . Fixes #7297.

Thanks to Mario for putting up with all my questions and teaching me all about upstart as he was walking me through everything I needed to know to commit this.

This config file appears to result in mythtv backend respawning over and over again on system shutdown. Does it need something more clever in it? This means shutdown takes ages.

This script has since been moved out of contrib and onto the wiki at . Please seek assistance on the MythTV mailing list or IRC channel, or Mythbuntu message board or IRC channel.
