I have an interesting situation here.
I am trying to set up mythtv 0.11 on my linux box. The problem is that I
am totally blind and am unable to use the GUI under linux. I am
restricted to the command-line.
If I am understanding the documentation correctly, I should be able to run
the backend without X running. HOwever, the setup program is X-based.
I am wondering if there is a way of doing the setup process without a GUI.
If I knew what goes into the settings table I could probably do it
Is the settings table the only thing that gets populated during the setup
process? I am guessing that the filldatabase program does not require X
If I am on the right track here, could someone let me know what goes into
the settings table, or possibly just send me a dump of that table?
My plan is to use the web interface for scheduling programs once this is
Any help would be greatly apreciated.
