[mythtv] [PATCH] Enable/Disable OpenGL VSync via mythfrontend or
joevph at yahoo.com
Fri May 27 22:02:57 UTC 2005
It was working fine for me, I'm pretty sure that I
attached the correct set of patches. (Definitely, the
"connect" was not supposed to be there - having it
there gave me the greyed out option).
Maybe it worked for me because I had the database
entry present already, since I originally started
mucking about with it in 0.18.1. I didn't do a
database reset, rather I just made a backup of my
database before migrating to CVS. Since I have the
CVS and the 0.18.1 binaries on the machine, and switch
between them by changing /etc/ld.so.conf, I suppose I
could just delete the database and repopulate it from
scratch, and restore the backup when I want to go to
I was definitely seeing the check mark retain it's
value though, because when I switched to LiveTV, I'd
get either SGI OpenGL, or RTC, depending on the value
of the checkbox. I toggled it about five times just
to make sure that I wasn't missing something.
I'll redo the diffs and see what's going on...
