#9915 new Bug Report - General

Mythbackend setup correctly writes .test file but reports directory not writable.

Reported by: Eric Youngberg <eyoungberg@…> Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: MythTV - General Version: 0.24.1
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


In response to hardware failing in my Myth backend box, I removed the HDD containing my videos and recordings directories and installed it onto a ClearOS server as a samba share, called /sevenfifty. At the end of the Mythbackend setup process, Mythbackend correctly writes .test files to the /sevenfifty/videos/ and /sevenfifty/recordings/ samba shares. But the Mythbackend setup program still issues a warning saying that the /sevenfifty/videos/ and /sevenfifty/recordings/ folders are not writable. I can confirm from a Windows client that the .test files have been written, I can also store and retrieve files from/to the folders from the Windows client to the share, MythFrontEnd? will play the existing recordings and videos, and I can putty into Myth box and have it make and remove a .test directory from the /sevenfifty/videos/ and sevenfifty/recordings/ samba shares. But the backend will not record anything new. Myth version is 0.24.1
