G'day all

I'm going crazy trying to start mythbackend using systemctrl

If anybody can help --- pretty please ...

Got the (fedora) systemctl file from the wiki: http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Systemd_mythbackend_Configuration

It does not start and status is

sandypit:/mnt/store/mythlogs # systemctl status mythbackend.service 
mythbackend.service - MythTV backend service
	  Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/mythbackend.service; enabled)
	  Active: inactive (dead) since Tue, 10 Jul 2012 12:50:41 +0800; 30s ago
	 Process: 3036 ExecStart=/usr/local/bin/mythbackend --daemon --logpath /mnt/store/mythlogs --pidfile /var/run/myth.pid (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
	  CGroup: name=systemd:/system/mythbackend.service

The log file IS created, but is empty.
I can pickup the ExecStart line, execute it, and it does run normally.

Help ...
