Djeeez louise... I just pointed out some little thing, no need to spin it
into a whole tediously long thread...!
But, since we're here now, and since we obviously are both too stubborn to
admit to anything, let me quote you directly from your own official docs,
although I fear this is gonna get real repetitive over time:
From: Chapter 21.11 Automatically starting mythbackend at system boot time
Copy the files from the MythTV contrib directory (...)
# cp etc.rc.d.init.d.mythbackend /etc/rc.d/init.d/mythbackend
By default, the log file for mythbackend will be written to /var/tmp/
mythbackend.log. This has been tested and is known to work on Mandrake and
Red Hat, but many people prefer to place logs under /var/log/.
So. Need I say any more ? Your own docs say, litterally: <<By default, the
log file for mythbackend will be written to /var/tmp/mythbackend.log>>

I'm not confused. Just getting more incredulous while reading this thread.
But, you're right. It can get quite confusing when the developer contradicts
his own docs. Still, he made an incredibly fine piece of software. Thanks.
