    0.26 mythtv-setup freezing

    We've just started discussing this on the mythtv list and the common thread seems to be mythbuntu.

    mythtv-setup seems to be freezing on exit. It seems to freeze up when I get to the "If you've added or altered..." screen with the ok button.

    Some on the list think it might be the mythbuntu wrapper around mythtv-setup.real.

    Anyone else seen this in 0.26? I guess it can be hard to diagnose since many of us don't use mythtv-setup for months at a time.

    I can confirm that I get this hang on my system, running .26 on Mythbuntu 12.04.
    If you are asking about a problem with your system, make sure to give details about your setup. OTHERWISE, NO ONE CAN HELP YOU.

    I am unable to reproduce this. Please provide exact steps for reproduction.

    Exact steps:

    start mythtv-setup
    [make changes or just go through pages]
    try to exit mythtv-setup
    pop-up with "ok" comes up. Frozen, can't click on OK.

    That's my experience also.

    Re: 0.26 mythtv-setup freezing

    I ran across a similar discussion that has what sounds like a reasonable workaround (stopping the backend first).


    I can’t comment first hand as I’m just doing my homework preparing to upgrade to .026.

    Re: 0.26 mythtv-setup freezing

    mythtv-setup on mythbuntu is a shell script that wraps around the real mythtv-setup which has been named mythtv-setup.real. I have found that you can run mythtv-setup.real to avoid the freeze.

    Otherwise I see the freeze too. It was introduced with the conversion to 0.26.
