I have myth running on an up to date dapper install on an amd64 system.
They were installed using the debs from mario's repository, which in
turn are, I believe, based on the debian debs. I want to be able to have
myth start all the way to the front end running without manual
intervention but have run into a couple of problems I could use some
1. I cannot get mythbackend to start automatically in 0.20. This
worked fine with 0.19, but I have had to reinstall (long story) and now
it doesn't want too work. There is a script installed and part of the
init process but nothing happens. I can start it with:
and then everything is fine.
2. I cannot get lirc to start automatically either. I am using a
twinhan remote which connects at /dev/eventx and any script I use breaks
lirc and means I have to reinstall. At present:
$ sudo lircd
will start it. There is a related problem where the location of the
different devices connected at /dev/event wander and the numbers change.
I found a script that claimed to cure this and forgot to bookmark it.
If anyone can remember where it is I would be grateful.
If anyone can point in the general direction of the right answer I
would be very grateful.
