I'm on gentoo, mythbackend is started as root, so this user job will run as root as well.
- What? No it isn't. The stock init script for Gentoo setuids to the mythtv user account. wagnerrp 06:43, 9 May 2012 (UTC)
- You are right. I will correct this. - reznor
Detecting already running
On my system (mythtv 0.25, ubuntu 12.04), user jobs are launching as `sh -c /opt/myth_make_x264.pl...` and there is another entry in `ps aux` for the resultant perl process. The script finds that shell process as another entry and thinks there is another script running. I modified to the below, which seems to work:
my $curProcs = `ps aux | grep $scriptName | grep -v grep | grep -v "sh -c" | wc -l`;
This is my first user job, so maybe I've done something strange...but I don't think so. Bygottski 05:42, 31 May 2012 (UTC)
- I'm not really sure what the intended purpose of that code is anyway. The jobqueue has an internal task limit that will prevent too many instances from being run simultaneously. I don't know why the script would need its own semaphore. wagnerrp 07:57, 31 May 2012 (UTC)
