kvandesteeg Wrote:Got it version 444 working from the command line.

I gave up on the setup script - the filesystem test was failing because of running the script under sudo su
running the diagnostics under sudo, it worked as expected

i also had to add mysql's path to /etc/profile
Code:
PATH="/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/mysql/bin"
Now that it's working ... how do i change it? Big Grin
specifically for movies, i don't want directory/movie title/movie title(year).mpg i'd rather have directory/movie title (year).mpg

Was that just because i ran it from the command line?

I haven't seen the output from a live recoding from MythTV yet.

I haven't gotten the RSS fixed yet, but i'm using mythweb's rss feed for now.
mythicalSetup will now work just fine. It is set for default now at ~/Episodes ~/Showings and ~/Movies

Excerpt from the output.log

Code:
MOVING FILE: '/home/shared/media/MythTV.Storage/1065_20100423073000.mp4' to '/home/shared/media/Episodes/Mickey Mouse Clubhouse/Season 1/Mickey Mouse Clubhouse S01E16 (Plutos Puppy-sitting Adventure).Storage/1065_20100423073000.mp4'

PERMISSION ERROR WHILE MOVING
It took me a while to figure out why this was failing, turns out that it didn't like the "." in the folder name. I changed MythTV.Storage to MythTV_Storage and the error went away.

Fixed. It will now only check the basename ie.. 1065_20100423073000.mp4 This allows the odd circumstance when the user may have a file named 1065_20100423073000.mp4.part.mp4 or whatever. It will now rename the 1065_20100423073000 part and preserve all after the first "." while ignoring any "."s in the dir names.

It should work just fine now on your folder with a "." in it.

Any more bugs? I'm still working on mac errors with mythtv and stuff.
I'm using myth .23 fixes

The User job ought to have this - correct?
/usr/local/bin/mythicalLibrarian "%DIR%/%FILE%"

Myth reported exiting with non zero error, but i didn't get to the myth log file in time.
~/.mythicalLibrarian/output.log had nothing from the run.

i'm trying another recording shortly
nothing in output.log - but managed to scrape this out of console

Hrm mythtv user does not have access to the mysql command. I will search on how to resolve that tomorrow. Try editing the ~.profile to see if there is anything about it in there. I cannot seem to get mysql to work on my mac.

So... Wow! That's my first confirmation it works on OS X. Please let me know if it does movies and showings properly.

I'm still squeeling my wheels in 2nd gear. You have pulled out ahead of me on this one.
Oh yeah. Add yourself to the mythtv group instead of using sudo. Sudo will cause problems with permissions in your home dir. Files will be owned by root.
Note to self for tomorrow: must change so that when original airdate is matched, fuzzy does not make an attempt.
Couldn't get any further from getting it to run from MythTV.

Synched with SVN, and ran into an issue with the update script
had to remove
Code:
"$LinuxDep" = "1" &&
from line 123 of mythicalSetup, so it would update in OSX
Try changing the user job in mythtv setup to:
Code:
bash  /usr/local/bin/mythicalLibrarian "%DIR%/%FILE%"
it may not be loading /bin/bash on the she-bang at the top. It could be trying to run mythicalLibrarian in SH mode (scripting host). Try that out. Let me know if it works. I'll change it perminantly.

no luck with that.
I'm working on it now. I've almost installed mysql. I'm having problems.
try this:
Code:
echo PATH="$PATH:/usr/local/mysql:/usr/local/mysql/bin"|sudo tee ~/../mythtv/.profile
then reboot.
What is the username running mythtv? Can I see your debug log? ~.mythicalLibrarian/output.log
it runs under the username 'htpc'

the only thing in the ~/.myticalLibrarian/output.log is from the manual runs, it doesn't even look like the User Job is being kicked off

i have mythtv running as a User Daemon as i wasn't able to run it w/o sudo
Ok, now I've got mythtv up and running in mac OS X... I have a much better understanding of what's going on.

Your user htpc has a separate home dir. His log file will be in that folder not your ~/.mythicalLibrarian. It will probly be ~/../htpc/.mythicalLibrarian

There's many ways around it. Here is the simplest:
You can change the ownership of the folder and all sub-folders.
Code:
sudo chown -R htpc "/path/to/recordings"
where "/path/to/recordings" is your recording dir or where the files are moved if you chose folders in mythicalSetup.
