Did you leave the
at the end of /etc/rc.local ?
Did you add an ampersand to the end of the command to fork the process
and allow the machine to finish booting? i.e.
sleep 10 && QT_QPA_EGLFS_ALWAYS_SET_MODE="1" QT_QPA_PLATFORM=eglfs
mythfrontend --logpath=/tmp/ &
I never saw any systemd errors - and I did a lot of debugging trying to
get various things to work.
Note that even running without a window manager, I still wasn't happy
with the playback and now I only use mythfrontend to program the
backend. For watching content, I switched to kodi, which is in general
much more responsive, even with a window manager, but doesn't offer all
the functionality for recording new programs that mythfrontend does.
