I have an AMD64 box running sarge - meant for a HTPC with mythtv compiled from source (v0.18) - there are no AMD64 Debian mythtv packages. After a long period of problems, I almost have it working.
However, upon bootup the following script
# Check the SQL database and fix if necessary(disabled for now)
# mysqlcheck -r mythconverg
# Start the lirc daemon
/usr/local/sbin/lircd -d /dev/lirc0
# Start mythbackend
/usr/local/bin/mythbackend > /home/matt/mythbackend.log 2>&1 &
starts the 'mythbackend' process, owned by root using the following symlink:
# ls -l /etc/rc2.d/S91mythbackend
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 23 2005-05-05 20:52 S91mythbackend -> /etc/init.d/mythbackend
I am pretty sure i need to run mythbackend (and lircd) upon startup owned by my regular user
('matt') and not root - what do I need to do?
