MythTV vanished
« on: January 29, 2010, 07:37:32 pm »
I installed the latest 810 beta updates and my MythTV vanished!  Apparently it was removed. Is there something I need to do to get it back or do I just need to wait patiently for a future update to restore it?

Thanks, Tom

look at recent threads on MythTV version issues referencing ticket 574. http://svn.linuxmce.org/trac.cgi/ticket/574

Thanks.

I created the file, did an update, and then rebooted but mythtv still did not start up.
I then tried an update again but nothing needed to be updated.
I then installed mythtv since apparently it was not installed and rebooted but mythtv still did not start up.
While looking through the available packages I noticed pluto-myth-player was not installed so I installed it and rebooted and finally mythtv started up fine and appears to be working as expected.

It should be noted that I'm running a hybrid-core with no MD currently.

It seems very strange that an update would delete a critical component like this.
