08:55jollis hi, can anyone help me set up my mysql database, because i keep getting error messages
08:57Rince what is the problem?
08:59jollis when i try and run mythsetup i get the following error message:
08:59jollis mysqladmin -u root flush-privileges password "newpwd"
09:00jollis oops - sorry
09:00jollis not that
09:00jollis the error message is:
09:00jollis Access denied for user: 'mythtv@localhost' (Using password: YES)
09:03Rince and which password have you set for the database mythtv and user mythtv?
09:03Rince database mythconverg, sorry
09:03jollis i havnt
09:05Rince haev you already exectuted "mc.sql"?
09:05Rince via "mythtv mythtv < mc.sql" ?
09:06jollis no, i get the same error message :(
09:07Rince are you use root or user mythtv?
09:07Rince user instead of use, sorry
09:08jollis i've tried both, but still get access denied messages
09:08jollis :(
09:09Rince okay. Try the following
09:09Rince become root
09:09Rince try "mysql mysql"
09:09Rince does this work?
09:09jollis ERROR 1045: Access denied for user: 'root@localhost' (Using password: YES)
09:09Rince try "mysql mysql --password=newpwd"
09:09Rince no...
09:10Rince try "mysql --password=newpwd mysql"
09:10Rince does this ork?
09:10Rince work?
09:10jollis no, same error message
09:10Rince do you know the root-password for the database?
09:10--- ---> dcas [] has joined #mythtv
09:11jollis if i type mysql 'mysql -u root -p' and then enter the password when asked, i get the 'mysql>' prompt
09:11Rince ok
09:11Rince then this is ok
09:11Rince when you are at the mysql-prompt, type "drop database mythconverg"
09:11Rince this will delete everything from mythtv so you can reinstall it
09:11jollis ok
09:12jollis done that
09:12jollis how do i reinstall it?
09:12Rince just a minute
09:12Rince type in the mysql-prompt
09:12Rince "CREATE DATABASE mythconverg;
09:13Rince "
09:13Rince and
09:13Rince "GRANT ALL ON mythconverg.* TO mythtv@localhost IDENTIFIED BY "mythtv";"
09:13Rince after that, mythsetup should work
09:15jollis i did all that but i still get the access denied message
09:18Rince huh?
09:18Rince try "mysql -u mythtv -p mythconverg" and as password "mythtv"
09:18Rince ah
09:18Rince sure
09:18Rince type "mysqladmin -u root -p reload" and type the root-password
09:18Rince and _then_ try mythsetup
09:19jollis "mysql -u mythtv -p mythconverg" just gives access denied again
09:19jollis "mysqladmin -u root -p reload" works, but mythsetup still doesnt want to know
09:20--- <<-- dcas [] has quit (Remote closed the connection)
09:20Rince after the reload, das myqsl -u mythtv -p mythconverg still doesn't work?
09:20Rince if so then you have a very strange setup
09:21jollis :(

10:53jason_ how does mythtv detect commercials?
11:00Rince there are different algorithms
11:00Rince like checking for the sender-logo, having a frame with real black picture
11:02jason_ is it safe to automatically detect/delete commercials or does that lead to deletion of the program as well?
11:02Rince detect yes
11:02Rince but I wouldn't delete it automatically
11:02jason_ so, you can do that afterwards?
11:02Rince I usually let the machine skip the passages while wathing
11:02Rince sure you can
11:03jason_ so you record it, and then let it skip through commercials
11:03Rince yes
11:03jason_ do you transcode?
11:03jason_ i need to make a partition for mythtv. I have 110 gb free, but only 5gb on a linux partition.
11:04Rince well, and?
11:04jason_ sorry, just thinking out loud
11:06jason_ on an amd 2700+, 512 mb pc2700, how long would it take to transcode to mpeg 4? Each pass in divx for a anamorphic movie at full resolution (720x3..) takes about an hour and a half for a 2 hour movie
11:06Rince don't know, sorry
11:07jason_ how long does it take on your system?
11:07Rince jason_: I have a Epia M2-1K... 1Ghz... quite long ;)
11:07jason_ Rince, reallY? when do you do transcoding?
11:08Rince jason_: I just let it transcode if I need and then I just start it and wait some days
11:08jason_ days???
11:08jason_ a 2 hour movie, 2 pass encode only takes me 3 hours
11:09jason_ so, that would be like encoding 4 hours
11:09Rince jason_: as I said, I have a slow system
11:09jason_ it's a 1ghz. Why so slow?
11:10jason_ mythbackend does the recording/encoding, right?
11:10Rince jason_: because this is an Epia-System, ready and used for a barebone-system. And it is quite silent
11:10jason_ heh, my system is definitely not silent...4 fans on the box alone
11:10jivtv Rince, are you using a pvr 2/350 on epia?
11:11jason_ you could probably hear the ati radeon 9700 pro by itself
11:11--- <--- rkulagow_ [] has left #mythtv ()
11:11jason_ does the pvr-350 do hardware mpeg 4 encoding?
11:12jivtv jason, no mpeg2... except for mine, it encodes junk..
11:12* RevGreb notes topic
11:12RevGreb and that htis is developer channel
11:12jason_ RevGreb, sorry
11:12Rince jivtv: pvr 350, yes
11:13jivtv rince, can I chat directly for a second?

18:18--- ---> eyver [] has joined #mythtv
18:19eyver I'm trying to install MythMusic on my KnoppMyth installation, and the QT3 directories are weird. For example, after compiling a lot of the MythMusic files, it tries to go to /usr/include/qt3/src/moc but that directory does not exist. The installation gets caught in a loop there. Anyone know what I should do? Thanks.
18:28jams just a guess that you need to set your QTDIR env.
18:29eyver It's set.
18:31eyver It's set to /usr/include/qt3, in fact, but there are no folders but "private" in there. All the files that would normally be in lib and include are in there. I had to symlink include and lib inside /usr/include/qt3 because all the files in those two folders are just scattered in there.
18:32jams try export QTDIR=/usr/share/qt3
18:33--- <<-- choenig [] has quit (Remote closed the connection)
18:33eyver Beautiful, there it all is.
18:33eyver Except a src directory... oh well, let's see what happens...
18:34jams export PATH=$PATH:$QTDIR/bin.
18:34jams dont' forget that one
18:37jams may i ask why you are recompiling mythmusic ?
18:43--- ---> roz [] has joined #mythtv
18:43eyver jams, because KnoppMyth's version doesn't seem to have any visualizations enabled.
18:44eyver Now it seems to die at the final line of compilation with:
18:44eyver /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lXmu
18:45eyver What program is that associated with?
18:46jams Xfree86
18:47eyver Hm, why wouldn't it be linked properly?
18:47jams hey, just noticed this is the wrong channel. I will help you in mythtv-users of knoppmyth
18:48eyver Oh, woops. Cool, since I'm already in knoppmyth, we can do it there.
