MythTV 31 is out!

Initial update is out. There were quite a number of changes and the wiki has not yet been fully updated, so there might still be some bugs with this build. Please report so that I can try to fix.

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.

Just to add... are you taking ownership of mythplugins too?

RuneArch commented on 2020-10-27 12:58

Just chiming in with my support @delx - thanks!

@delx I would be grateful for this (How would people feel about me adopting this modifying it to track the fixes/31 branch) and offer my entire cache of encouragement :)

@delx Thanks for the suggestion on AUR helpers. I installed 'yay' and then used it to install mythtv-git on a completely fresh Archlinux system and it worked great.

Hi @jfabernathy. Most of the dependencies for mythtv and mythtv-git are available in the core+extra Arch Linux repositories. For the AUR dependencies you will indeed need to build them yourself. There are tools called AUR helpers which can assist with this.

Another newbie question since you are about to look into this project. This could be me misunderstanding how things work but when I built mythtv the first time, it failed due to missing dependencies. So I had to go to each dependency that it was complaining about, then search aur for it, and do the git. Then makepkg -si for each one. Then I could makepkg -si for mythtv itself. Is this normal? Or am I missing something I should know.

Thanks :)

I'll wait a few more days in case somebody else wants to chime in.

@delx, sounds good to me. Thanks.

@delx, I have no objections to you adopting this package.

How would people feel about me adopting this modifying it to track the fixes/31 branch, just like mythtv-git. At that point mythtv-git could be dropped, or somebody else could adopt it to track master.
