My machine will now not boot and one of the messages I see in the boot process is
Code:
:: Starting Avahi
2 :: Starting Hal
2 serving

10.0.0.6:3333 - couldn't open socket: host is unreachable
serving::

4 :: Starting Hal
It then tries numerous time to start Hal, unsuccessfully.

This has happened because I have just changed internet provider and the new gateway has has a very limited range for IP addresses. As a result I had to change the machine from static IP to DHCP which I did in both the Menu>Setup>LinHES Setup>Network (I think) and mythtv-setup>General>Page 1.

Initially the machine booted to the new IP address as provided by the gateway DHCP and worked happily. I can't remember what was the IP address but it could have been 10.0.0.6 as that is in the range of the new gateway. I then tried to get the new gateway to reserve a different IP address for the myth machine but still within its accepted range. From then on it was unable to boot giving the above message. I have removed the address reservation but still no joy.

Can anyone help me?

Some updates.

I managed to get rid of the "host is unreachable by modifying /etc/systemconfig. It had a mixture of the old and new ip addresses which I corrected. I also switched off xvnc by putting a 0 in the relevant line.

It still fails to boot but the 10.0.0.6 address still appears in the boot sequence
Code:
Python Backend Connection Couldn't connect to backend [10.0.0.6]:6543

Couldn't connect to MythTV services for status
Starting irexec
Starting Hal
Starting Hal
.........ad infinitum
I have tried a system restore from the command line using /usr/LH/bin/lh_system_restore_job but still get the same problem. Still the same message about 10.0.0.6 and I am currently trawling through the system with grep looking for any file that is calling it.

Any suggestions?

Another update.

I reinstalled R8.3 as an update but the same thing is happening and it fails to boot. The 10.0.0.6 address still appears in the boot sequence.

Please help

As a general rule /etc/systemconfig should not be edited directly. There are some exceptions that relate to testing. It is a bad idea because many of the settings if changed need to run a child process to actually make the change to the system and editing it won't run those processes. Also /etc/systemconfig gets rewritten every time systemconfig.py is run because the settings are actually stored in the db and /etc/systemconfig is there only to make it easy to see settings without looking at the db.

So I think the old IP is reappearing because that is what is saved in the db. Both the restore and upgrade would restore and apply that same setting. Changing your network settings in LinHES Setup > Network is the correct way to change this. Check the current IP from a terminal with ifconfig. What I am not following is why you tried going to a static IP since you said the first boot on the with the new DHCP server gave you an address. At that point you should only have needed to change the IPs in mythtv-setup if they weren't 127.0.0.1. If you want to go static that is fine. Just make sure the static IP you choose is either outside the DHCP servers range or there is a reservation in the DHCP server so that it never gives out your selected IP to another client.

You should also disable VNC from LinHES Setup > Screen Sharing if you don't want it.

OK that makes a bit of sense now. However I did restore to an earlier date before the changes and no success with the boot. I could try again with the machine connected to the old modem with the old reserved IP. Would that make a difference?

With regard to changing things in the menu, I am unable to boot so I am having to do everything from the command line which I get into by interrupting grub and selecting Arch.

The original setup had static IP with reservation from the modem. My plan is to do the same on the new modem to simplify remote access. I also plan to reinstate vnc but was just disabling it to try and get rid of errors in the boot sequence. Desperation!!

I can't think of any reason that avahi or hal would keep X from starting. Even lack of networking should keep X from starting. From the command line what does ifconfig give you? Anything in /var/log/Xorg.0.log or /var/log/boot or /var/log/$DATE/$HOST_messages.log?

I also thought that lack of networking shouldn't prevent X starting.

Here are the outputs from files you mentioned. Remember these are taken from a restored state.

ifconfig
Code:
lo: flags=73<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING>  mtu 65536
        inet 127.0.0.1  netmask 255.0.0.0
        inet6 ::1  prefixlen 128  scopeid 0x10<host>
        loop  txqueuelen 0  (Local Loopback)
        RX packets 4  bytes 200 (200.0 B)
        RX errors 0  dropped 0  overruns 0  frame 0
        TX packets 4  bytes 200 (200.0 B)
        TX errors 0  dropped 0 overruns 0  carrier 0  collisions 0
When I had checked this previously I did get the eth0 part as well showing the network ip address.

This made me look and it seems my 20-automv.conf has gone missing. I'll put one back from the backup and see how that goes.

What version of LinHES are you on. From the kernel version it looks pretty old.

Without eth0 you definitely don't have networkings. The upgrade should have done it but try running systemconfig and see if it is erroring out somewhere and post the /tmp/systemconfig_debug.log.
Code:
sudo systemconfig.sh all


If you had a custom xorg restore that as you said, or run xconfig.sh and post the /tmp/xconfig.log.

I am running R8.3 but have not done any updates since upgrading from 8.2 back in late 2015.

I ran systemconfig but the contents of /tmp/systemconfig_debug.log is to big and the forum won't let me attach the file. It looks like it cannot connect to the database. The following excerpts are what I see as important

Cannot login to database

Would you like to configure the database connection now? [no] 
[console is not interactive, using default 'no']
QWaitCondition: cv destroy failure: Device or resource busy
QWaitCondition: mutex destroy failure: Device or resource busy
Subsequent problems such as lirc probably stem from the lack of connection to the database.

Something else I discovered is that mysql is not running and nor can I start it. The program runsv is not running which I assume is supposed to be and that is confirmed in /tmp/systemconfig_debug.log. Or is is because I am doing this in Arch command line not LinHES?

For some reason the kernel is not creating eth0. That would seem to indicate that there is a problem with your ethernet hardware. Does lspci show your ethernet device? Or run the install ISO and chose run mythfrontend and it will try to bring up the network after that screen open a term and do ifconfig.

Running lspci does show an eth0 device
Code:
00:19.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82566DC Gigabit Network Connection (rev 02)

Running the install iso as mythfrontend then ifconfig shows eth0 as <UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST> with an inet address of 10.0.0.106.

Should I be looking a a complete reinstall? Fortunately all my recordings and media are on a second drive.

Something is messed up with the current db but I can't say for certain what. I am not sure the order you restored the backup and upgrade install you could try doing a restore of one of the good backups.

Otherwise you will need to make sure your backups are saved to another drive as well as any media and then do an install. That will wipe the boot drive and install a clean system. Then do a Partial Restore as described in http://linhes.org/projects/linhes/wiki/ ... -R8-system This will ensure that none of the host settings of the new install get overwritten.

I just tried another restore from a secondary backup from my other drive but no success so it looks like a reinstall.

So my plan is to
1. I will make another copy the contents of /data onto my secondary drive just in case.
2. Install R8.3. Should I go the 8.4.2 or will that complicate the issue?
3. Skip the setup stage and perform the partial restore.

Do you agree?
