mythfilldatabase hangs

Reported by: pyther@… Owned by: stuartm
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: MythTV - Mythfilldatabase Version: 0.22
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


Well as the summary states mythfilldatabase hangs. This seems to only happens when it is ran automatically. If I run mythfilldatabase as root or a user it seems to complete without any troubles.

ps aux shows: root 1495 0.0 2.3 79728 17776 ? SNl 16:10 0:12 /usr/bin/mythfilldatabase

I can kill the process with no problem

The issues is present in 0.22 and in 0.21

This prevents my myth box from shutting down while it is idle. I am not sure how to go about troubleshooting the issue further.

I have attached the output of a successful mythfilldatabase run.

Do you want a backtrace of a successful run?

comment:4 Changed 11 years ago by sphery

Backtrace of a run after that run hangs, please--along with the log from that run. Since it will be run through mythbackend, that means the backend log. You'll likely have to connect gdb to the running/hung process.

I will look into this and report back. However I will be unable to do anything until Friday afternoon.

How can I get mythfilldatabase to run from the backend? It shows that it ran today successfully so I don't think it is something that happens every time when it gets ran.
