I am havng problems with the theme chooser: when choosing a theme for
download, mythtv "hangs" (does not complete the download) forever. IN
the logs I find the message mentiones in the subject.
I found http://irc.mythtv.org/ircLog/channel/1/2011-06-09, and in there:
[11:26:27] DarkSaboteur: Hi, I'm having an issue with the theme
downloader built into mythfrontend
[11:27:08] DarkSaboteur: It is unable to download any themes and
sits with the progress bar but nothing ever happens
[11:27:56] DarkSaboteur: The frontend logs contain
"downloadRemoteFile(): DOWNLOAD_FILE returned ERROR!"
[11:28:12] DarkSaboteur: And the backend "Unable to determine
directory to write to in DOWNLOAD_FILE write command"
[11:28:30] DarkSaboteur: I am not sure how to tell it which
directory to use for DOWNLOAD_FILE
[11:28:42] DarkSaboteur: Any ideas?
[11:29:09] DarkSaboteur: I'm on 0.24.1 if it matters
[12:08:50] DarkSaboteur: Nevermind, it was a permissions issue on
the backend. Mythbackend was unable to create the tmp and theme
this sounds reasonable, but I do not know, WHICH directory permissions I
need to change. I am running 0.24.1_p20111030 on gentoo, backend runs as
user mythtv, frontend with my user ID.
