Looking at the messages above I'd say it's MythDVD causing your
problem. Try doing a "yum remove MythDVD" then launching
mythfrontend If your system is like mine, then you will not be
getting a SegFault just after the "Inserting MythDVD initial database
You will however be getting a SegFault just after MythMusic or
MythGallery message instead.
I just repeated the process, removing each plugin (MythDVD,
MythMusic, MythGallery, MythPhone in my case) until mythfrontend
launched successfully. Then you can try adding the plugins back in
one by one, in the same order you removed them, and see if you get a
SegFault again (I did). So I left them disabled.
I haven't dug too deeply into this as I don't think I need to get
these plugins working for what I want, and I have no idea where/how
to look. Linux is all foreign to me (MythTV is my first foray into
But if anyone else has any ideas of things to try I'm all ears.
