[mythtv-users] Running Mythtv-setup without X

At the minimum the mythtv-setup program is linked against the X11 libraries.
When shared linked, X11 has to be installed on your server. This can be checked with ldd; see below for output.
Statically linked: you needed a server with X11 installed. After that you transfer it to server without X.

Running mythtv-setup remotely will work .
