I am having numerous issues with my Myth box. None of these are new, I've just never been able to resolve them all since building the box. Any insight into any of these would be helpful.
1. Mythbackend crashes. About once a day or once every two days mythbackend crashes for no reason. I've searched every log file and the only thing I can find is a "segfault" error on one line. This can happen when there is NO activity with the box or when there is activity (recording). I setup "monit" to monitor the mythbackend process but this is only a bandaid approach as it can crash while recording - not good.
2. Mythfilldatabase segfaults. Again, not sure why, the only thing I can find in any log is reference to a segfault.
3. X kills my CPU. This isn't a problem EXCEPT that when it is sucking up 100% cpu that the system is unresponsive to remote control commands. Seems to be intermittent and varies for no reason because if you watch it on "top" X varies between ~7% to 100% while watching a show. While it's at 100% the system will not respond to any input. Very annoying.
I am running a newly built system:
gigabyte GA-MA78 ATX mobo
Biostar nvidia 7200GS
AMD 5000+ 64 X2
Seagate SATA drive
