Making Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 stable

June 16, 2010

These kernel parameters made my Lucid stable:

root@hippo:~$ dmesg |grep "command line"
[    0.000000] Kernel command line: BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-22-generic \
root=UUID=dcfa191a-0318-4062-986c-d6db2474382a ro \
nomodeset noapic
root@hippo:~$ grep noapic /etc/default/grub

Remember to run update-grub after making chnages.


Howto to allow remote mythtv frontends connect to backend?

June 10, 2010

This is asked about gazillion times in the web… But very infrequent good answers/resolutions.. So here we go…

On the machine you’re running mysql (typically the same machine as your MythTV master backend server), you need to allow mysql connections from other hosts on your network.

$ mysql -u root -p mythconverg
mysql> grant all on mythconverg.* to mythtv@"192.168.2.%" identified by "mythtv";
mysql> flush privileges;
mysql> quit
