    Exclamation [CLOSED] Installing Shepherd in MBuntu 10.10

    Hi all,

    I'm a newb and I'm trying to install Shepherd onto Mythbuntu V10.10.

    Doesn't Mythbuntu log on as user 'mythtv'?

    If so, how can I install Shepherd as user mythtv? I only seem to be able to log on as myself ( ).

    I re-read the installation doco ( http://svn.whuffy.com/wiki/Installation ) and it seems to indicate that shepherd doesn't care what user you are. However, that seems to contradict the behaviour of the installation.

    I have tried to instal Shepherd, but it gives me "permission" errors and then fails. (I think this is because I have the wrong permissions or I am not the right user).

    Can anyone help?

    mythfrontend runs as the user you set up druing installation. mythbackend runs as mythtv.

    I just tried the instructions and got to the point where it said "Create configuration file and update MythTV? [yes,no (default=yes)] no" and I chickened out, not wanting to destroy my xmltv setup.

    Where did it fail for you?

    I'm a Shepherd dev. Please copy and paste the output including errors.

    Guys,

    I found some inherent problems with V10.10 and reverted to V10.04. I will open a new thread with that title.

    Apologies to all & thanks so far.

    Question Re: Installing Shepherd in MBuntu 10.10

    Thanks to parsim.

    I had some help from Mark in Melbourne.

    BTW. How well will Shepherd cope with new digital 11 and the FreeView EPG?
