I have a FC9 PC running with the following MythTV compilation:
Please include all output in bug reports.
MythTV Version : 18265
MythTV Branch : trunk
Library API : 0.22.20080903-1
Network Protocol : 40
QT Version : 4.3.5
Options compiled in:
linux release using_oss using_alsa using_arts using_backend using_dbox2
using_dvb using_firewire using_frontend using_hdhomerun using_hdpvr
using_iptv using_ivtv using_joystick_menu using_lirc using_v4l using_x11
using_xrandr using_xv using_xvmc using_xvmc_vld using_xvmcw
using_bindings_perl using_bindings_python using_opengl using_ffmpeg_threads
This PC serves as both the master frontend and master backend and is working
Last week I installed Ubuntu 8.04 on a laptop and installed (compiled) the
same version of MythTV. I am trying to use the laptop as a frontend only.
The problem is that I can't find out why the backend refuses the connection
from the Ubuntu frontend.
Please see here for both backend and frontend logs:
The backend reports "Unknown socket closing", and the frontend freezes. The
frontend GUI does not appear until I stop the backend (Ctrl + C).
My first problem was that port 3306 (mySQL) in my firewall was closed. After
I opened it I managed to remotely log in to my database, but the same
problem persists for MythTV.
I have changed the IP addresses in mythtv-setup to the IP address of my FC9
PC (not 127.0.0.1 anymore).
Can anyone please give me some pointers on what could be wrong?
