View Full Version : Diskless Frontend database connect issues

April 5th, 2010, 04:29 PM

I am running MythBuntu 9.10. I have followed the instructions for setting up the diskless server manually at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MythTV/Install/Hardy/Diskless, and I can get a diskless front end up.

I start MythTV Frontend on it for the first time and it of course runs me through the initial setup wizard. I enter the database information, but then I get a screen that says:

Cannot find (ping) database host on the network

I have tried using the hostname and the IP and they both give the same error. From a terminal on the diskless front end, I am able to connect manually using

mysql -h -u mythtv -p mythconverg

It then of course asks me for the password, which I enter and it connects me no problem. I can list the tables, the data, etc. I also opened the control center on the diskless front end and made sure the database information in there was correct; the "test connectivity" test was successful.

Not sure if I have missed something?

Thanks, in advance, for your insight on this.
