    MythTV backend is 0.26 - how do I install 0.26 frontend on another machine?

    Hi Community:

    I have MythTV 0.26 installed on a nice old (1.5 years old) machine... both the backend and the frontend work fine on that machine.

    On the old machine, the command

    mythbackend --version
    yeilds

    MythTV Version : v0.26.0-78-gf35f899
    MythTV Branch : fixes/0.26
    Network Protocol : 75
    I built a new computer yesterday, and installed precise 12.04.

    I think that 12.04 uses 0.25 as the 'official' Mythtv distribution.

    So, since I have a mythbackend v0.26 installed on the new machine, I want to install mythfrontend v0.26 on the newly built machine.

    How do I do this?

    The URL http://www.ubuntuupdates.org/ppa/mythtv_0.26?dist=precise shows how to update your repositories to install 0.26:

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mythbuntu/0.26
    sudo apt-get update
    After doing that, when I look at synaptic, and file mythtv-frontend it shows that v0.25 is the version that will be installed.

    How to I make sure that mythfrontend 0.26 gets installed?



    I think this is an important point, since other posts show that when the frontend version on a 'fronend machine' is not the same as the version on a 'backend machine' there are conflicts in the MythTV database schema between the 2 machines that prevent the 'frontend machine from running.'

    So, how to I make sure that mythfrontend 0.26 gets installed to increase the chance that those conflicts do not arise?

    Thanks!

    That is the correct way (installing that PPA and doing an apt-get update). Do you currently have mythtv-frontend installed on that machine? What version gets installed if you 'apt-get install mythtv-frontend'

    What does this command return

    Code:
    rmadison mythtv-frontend
