User:Southern/Upgrading from 0.18.1 to 0.19 on Gentoo from Portage
Shutdown MythTV backend and any frontends
Add the following lines to /etc/portage/package.keywords
media-tv/mythtv ~x86 x11-themes/mythtv-themes ~x86 media-plugins/mythbrowser ~x86 media-plugins/mythvideo ~x86 media-plugins/mythnews ~x86 media-plugins/mythmusic ~x86 media-plugins/mythgallery ~x86 media-plugins/mythcontrols ~x86 media-plugins/mythweather ~x86 www-apps/mythweb ~x86
I don't have all of the plugins installed, so add any others that you will need.
mysqldump -p -uroot --all --opt --allow-keywords --flush-logs \ --hex-blob --master-data --max_allowed_packet=16M \ --quote-names mythconverg > mythtv_backup.sql
emerge -av mythtv mythbrowser mythvideo mythnews \ mythmusic mythgallery mythgallery mythcontrols mythweather mythweb
Update the config files.
I just ran the setup program and then exited out.
After the upgrade the mythbackend now runs as 'mythtv' user instead of 'root'. Not sure if this was related to just my install (I already had a mythtv user setup on the machine for the frontend). So I had a permission problem. Just chown the MythTV video directory to user 'mythtv' and everything is now working correctly. Also make sure the the mythtv user is in the 'video' group. If it isn't, recording or LiveTV isn't going to work for you.
