This package is still a work in progress.
It works well for me and many others.

Fix your copy to work the way you think is right, and send me patches.

Despite the fact that I have nvidia-304xx-libgl installed, the install is still refusing to run because I don't have mesa-libgl installed, which of course I can't install because nvidia-304xx-libgl conflicts with it.

Also, Why are you pointing to the fixes-0.28 branch instead of the master? Surely master should be the default, as it is by definition more bleeding edge than fixes-0.28.

Also, I see you've added mandatory dependencies for a lot of optional features, e.g. openGL acceleration, LIRC etc. Surely (as these are by no means 'core' features of MythTV) these dependencies should be optional. You're forcing users into installing bloatware for functionality they may not need. It's not really the Arch way IMO.

Thanks for the update. Will revert on my next upload.

martyg - just realized that Restart=on-failure is not a great idea for everyone. sorry. it means that mythtv-setup can't shut down the backend. i'd remove it.

[SOLVED] Problem below is solved. I knew I'd run into something similar before, and recalled that "/tmp" is too small (was only 2GB i.e. half my RAM). Increased it to 3GB temporarily as per these instructions, and it compiled fine (

Odd. Won't build on my laptop, but has done on my desktops recently (within the last couple of months). Error message on the laptop is:

{standard input}: Assembler messages:
{standard input}: Fatal error: can't close httpstatus.o: No space left on device
Makefile:1236: recipe for target 'httpstatus.o' failed
make[2]: *** [httpstatus.o] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory '/tmp/yaourt-tmp-mcmt/aur-mythtv-git/src/mythtv/mythtv/programs/mythbackend'

There's plenty of room on the hard drive available - 65GB - so I'm not sure what the "No space left on device" message refers to.

Done, but be aware the mythtv package in community does not have this turned on.
(I cloned this service file from community, it hasn't changed since)

gregbert commented on 2016-02-10 20:30

We we have "Restart=on-failure" in the service file? thanks

Oops my bad about comment below. It was related to libgl. qt5-x11extras not a dep.

p-we commented on 2015-10-24 04:27

It looks like qt5-x11extras package is a dependancy. I got no QT5 graphic interfaces in mythtv without it.

I'm hearing that 0.28 is a stable daily driver nowadays on gossamer threads. Will anyone comment here if this is the case for recent builds on current Arch? Thanks.
