Add me to the list of people who upgraded with no particular difficulty.
On my master FE/BE it was a little bit complicated because I'd never
upgraded that machine from SuSE 10.1 to 10.2. I had to do that
first. The distribution upgrade was surprisingly seamless, except
that GRUB refused to boot my system after the install. It would
continuously reboot without ever displaying the menu. After
reinstalling GRUB three times with no success, I installed LILO
instead and it worked. This was the first time I'd tried adding
third-party repositories (like Packman) during the install process,
and it seemed to really help with the problem of third-party packages
blocking the upgrade with unsatisfied dependencies.
With that done, the actual MythTV upgrade was as simple as stopping
all the backends, checking off the new packages in YaST, and letting
YaST do its thing. I brought the master backend back up to make sure
it was working, then shut it down again and ran mythtv-setup to flip
my listings provider over to Schedules Direct. I ran
mythfilldatabase, then fired everything up. All done.
The only weird glitch I encountered is on one occasion visiting the
MythWeb backend status page caused the master backend to crash. It
hasn't happened again, but I'm a bit nervous about using that page,
now. Is this a known bug or just a freak occurrence?
