Finally I get my myth box up and running with the latest cvs. It remains a
problem with changing channel, but I'll investigate in the future...

The big problem is with mythbackend. It exits with a segmentation fault,
here the messages:

mybox:/mnt/store# rm ringbuf1.nuv
mybox:/mnt/store# mythbackend

Segmentation fault

There is a lots of space in /mnt/store
mybox:/mnt/store# df
Filesystem           1k-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda1              3937220   1212080   2525136  33% /

/dev/hda6             23647476     56884  22389336   1% /mnt/store

I am using myth*end from root. Mythbackend and mythfrontend are on the same

I see the ringbuf1.nuv growing from zero to a size from 18 megs to a max of
24 megs before the segmentation fault.

As you can see, I am running an ext3 filesystem...


mythtv is amazing...
