Xbox Frontend on Xebian stable
Installing an Xbox Frontend on Xebian Stable
Alex Fisher has recompiled Christian Marillat's mythtv 0.19 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
Add Alex Fisher precompiled mythtv source
Add the following lines to /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://alexfisher.me.uk/debian sarge main deb ftp://ftp.nerim.net/debian-marillat/ sarge main
Run the following commands
apt-get update apt-get install mythtv-frontend
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 incapatible with the mysql cleint 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.
