Changes (by Nick Morrott <knowledgejunkie [at] gmail [dot] com>):

  * status:  closed => reopened
  * resolution:  fixed =>


 An update to the Fedora init script and config file which:

 * removes the MYTHTV_HOME variable and runtime checking for its existence
 * adds a further warning about running the backend as non-root
 * some tidying up and re-ordering of variables for consistency
 * hardcodes the pidfile name into the script to allow external script to
 reference the pidfile

 When daemon --user is used to start mythbackend, it calls runuser which in
 turn starts mythbackend with a login shell. This should ensure that $HOME
 is correctly defined for the mythbackend user and no extraneous files
 should be created in /.
