I would just like to say how easy the latest upgrade was for LinHES. I finally bit the bullet and upgraded from 7.1 to 7.3 then to 7.4 over the weekend, following Cecil's directions, on my Master Backend and Frontend.

This was by far the easiest upgrade for me to date. Not to mention all settings were carried thru during the upgrade. The only issue I had was remembering to enter a new console (Alt+F3) to continue the upgrade (unless the upgrade_linhes.sh script is suppose to do that automatically). Really digging the new MythTV 0.25, and LinHES.

Keep up the great work.

Now onto tweaking the mythmediastream theme, but that is another post.

My upgrade was pretty painless as well. I upgraded from R7.1 to R7.4 two days ago and I had to remove a couple packages as per this link:
viewtopic.php?f=22&t=22812

I didn't do anything with alt+f3 during the upgrade, so I am not sure if the script did that automatically on mine? The biggest "gotcha" so far was that the upgrade to mythtv 0.25 added a standby option in the frontend which defaulted to 90 minutes. This meant that even with the frontend open, the unit shutdown after 90 minutes of inactivity. I just set that option to 0 as I have been using mythwelcome to control my auto-shutdown and auto-startup.

The only other thing I have noticed is that my backend and frontend logs have been untouched since the upgrade. I haven't quite figured that one out...

Starting with .25 the logs follow a different system where each day is put into its own sub folder. Take a look in /var/log/2012-12-03/ and see if the new logs are in there.

I do not see any dated folders in /var/log. Everything seems to be operating normally so I do not need the logs at this time. However, they would be nice to have in the event that I do need them, lol.

Your system should be writing logs even when everything is fine.

I know... I was just hoping to ignore it. But now I'm on the hunt. I am reading the messages.log file and it has the following in it, which I don't know if it is suspicious or normal:

Code:
Dec  8 06:45:30 LinHES mythfrontend[5578]: N thread_unknown mythcommandlineparser.cpp:2538 (ConfigureLogging) Enabled verbose msgs:  general
Dec  8 06:45:30 LinHES mythfrontend[5578]: N thread_unknown logging.cpp:1176 (logStart) Setting Log Level to LOG_INFO
Dec  8 06:45:30 LinHES mythfrontend[5578]: I thread_unknown logging.cpp:229 (FileLogger) Added logging to the console
Dec  8 06:45:30 LinHES mythfrontend[5578]: I thread_unknown logging.cpp:369 (SyslogLogger) Added syslogging to facility local6
Dec  8 06:45:30 LinHES mythfrontend[5578]: I thread_unknown logging.cpp:425 (DatabaseLogger) Added database logging to table logging
Dec  8 06:45:30 LinHES mythfrontend[5578]: N thread_unknown logging.cpp:1215 (logStart) Setting up SIGHUP handler
Dec  8 06:45:30 LinHES mythfrontend[5578]: N thread_unknown mythdirs.cpp:51 (InitializeMythDirs) Using runtime prefix = /usr
Dec  8 06:45:30 LinHES mythfrontend[5578]: N thread_unknown mythdirs.cpp:64 (InitializeMythDirs) Using configuration directory = /home/mythtv/.mythtv


It's hard to know where to start when you usual start by looking at the frontend and backend logs! lol

Immediately there was a folder /var/log/2012-12-08. Thanks! Oddly, the LinHES_mythbackend.1710.log file is already 40k and growing. Lots of lines like:
Code:
2012-12-08T11:27:41.300199-06:00 LinHES mythbackend[1710]: I ProcessRequest ringbuffer.cpp:1086 (WaitForAvail) RingBuf(/myth/tv/2039_20121208100616.mpg): Waited 0.2 seconds for data #012#011#011#011to become available... 127016 < 196608


I think I'll reboot in case the verbosity is set too high or something.

Edit:
Nope, in the 20 minutes since I rebooted:

Is it normal for the logs to grow this quickly in 0.25?

Sounds like a different issue. Please open a new thread.
