I've only used mythbuntu - I've never done a stock install of 9.10.

If you do a 9.10 stock install, then add mythbuntu over it does the alsa audio stuff work?

I was thinking 9.10 defaults to pulse audio and alsa isn't there.

Yes a standard ubuntu build has alsa (and pulse), and I run both my front ends that way very successfully (although front end only) - I would recommend installing mysql-server before myth.

Also you prolly need to set up sql before running mythsetup:


create database mythconverg;
create user 'mythtv'@'localhost' identified by 'ynvUwe2U';
create user 'mythtv'@'192.%' identified by 'ynvUwe2U';
grant all privileges on mythconverg.* to 'mythtv'@'localhost';
grant all privileges on mythconverg.* to 'mythtv'@'192.%';
(You only need lines 3 & 5 if your running a separate frontend)

This is curious. I know past myth* packages on earlier Ubuntu releases weren't as resilient to problems with mysql interaction during initial setup. Have you actually ran into issues on 9.10's packages too? Could you please file a bug on the specifics of what your problems were? We made some pretty significant changes under the curtains that should have made this more foolproof.

I'm not sure if this is right superm1, but I believe what i did was this:
If you think this should not need the sql messing about I'll try out a dummy build if I can to get the exact details.



build PC with 9.10 server
add xubuntu desktop
bring up to date
add mysql server
add mythtv-backend only
configure backend - scans etc
build 1st front end PC
find I can't access the sql database, so do the mysql fixes
