Important Note on AUR packages in general:

For AUR packages, you - as the user installing the package - assume the role that a package maintainer has for regular repo packages.

That means that the responsibility to recompile the package whenever a package B that your package depends on changes. For repo packages, maintainers do this for you and re-release the package with an updated build number (e.g. -1 to -2). AUR mainainers will not do this, because there is no change to the PKGBUILD. You need to recompile locally, whenever this happens.

I recompiled. As soon as I start LiveTV the backend somehow manages to kill the mariadb-server. WTH?! I tried to revert to older verstions but the problem persists. Can someone confirm this problem or is it just my system?

Been seeing a lot of this in my logs recently:

mythpreviewgen[]: OMX: OMX_Init error OMX_ErrorInsufficientResources mythpreviewgen[]: OMX:0 Invalid OpenMAX context

OpenMax is ARM/RPi specific technology, so I just added a --disable-openmax in the configure stanza. Warnings are now gone.

I don't think these warnings were operation-affecting in any way, but they were n the way from me tracking down other unrelated stuff.

OK, should build - and then also run - again... Sorry for the delay, we just bought a house...

exiv2-0.27 is the current version in repository and is required by gimp-2.10.10 mythtv 1:30.0-5 requires exiv2-0.26 to run

I can confirm that bigcajun826 patch worked. I was able to build the package and mythtv is working correctly.

Taijian commented on 2019-05-22 22:13

Thanks everyone for bringing the issue and the (probable) fix up - I'll update this as soon as I'm able, but RL has kinda kept me busy these last few days... Sorry!

I think this patch will work until a new mythtv 30 bundle is ready:

Shouldn't have to downgrade exiv2 in Arch with this.

UPDATE: Taijian, feel free to pull from my clone here:

Found the problem with archlinux compilations of mythtv Downgraded package exiv2 (0.27.1-1 => 0.26-2)

RuneArch commented on 2019-05-22 08:41

Reverting to exiv2 0.26-2 worked for me, until that Myth commit makes it's way into the AUR package.
