Xbox Frontend on Xebian stable
Installing an Xbox Frontend on Xebian Stable
Alex Fisher has recompiled Christian Marillat's mythtv 0.20 source package against debian stable and optimised for Pentium 3.
The advantage with this configuration is that you do not need to upgrade any part of your Xebian from stable (sarge) to unstable (sid).
The steps involved with this are:
Install Xebian 1.1.4
I had to update to sarge to get mythtv to work, i read a mailing list that Alex had replied to that told you to update to sarge
Edit your sources.list to the following
deb http://ftp.at.debian.org/debian/ sarge main contrib non-free deb http://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US sarge/non-US main contrib non-free deb-src http://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US sarge/non-US main contrib non-free deb http://security.debian.org/ sarge/updates main contrib non-free deb-src http://security.debian.org/ sarge/updates main contrib non-free deb http://alexfisher.me.uk/debian sarge main deb http://ftp.sunet.se/pub/os/Linux/distributions/debian-multimedia sarge main
Now that your using sarge, you should probably update your distribution
apt-get update apt-get upgrade
Add Alex Fisher precompiled mythtv source
Skip this step if you did the above
Add the following lines to /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://alexfisher.me.uk/debian sarge main deb http://ftp.sunet.se/pub/os/Linux/distributions/debian-multimedia sarge main
Run the following commands
apt-get update apt-get install mythtv-frontend libmyth-0.20 mythtv-common
Jack Lowry has had a problem with his backend (Slackware 10.2, myth .19, mysql to 4.1.4) and his upgrading his xbox (xebian + mythtv 0.18 -> 0.19) with a mysql problem
But now I have a mysql version issue, when myth tries to make a connection to the mysql database I get a message in the .xsession-errors file that says:
ERROR 1251: Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MySQL client
I've also tried the mysql client and got the same error message.
It seems newer versions of mysql use a new password scheme that's compatible with the mysql client compiled into myth packages I was using. The following link provides several methods to work beyond this problem. I created a new user for my xbox frontend using the old format password.
Another alternative is to check the my.cnf file on the server. It may contain an option to enable old-scheme passwords. Also, if you are unable to connect to the database check the my.cnf file to see if mysql is bound to an actual network address and not 127.0.0.1.
