For anyone using Slackware on their myth box take note. Slackware current with mysql-1.5.42 breaks QT which breaks mythtv. Myth is unable to query the database due to a pointer declaration issue in mysql. See Mysql bug 48284
for details. You can read more on the discovery of the issue here
. This should have been merged with 1.5.42 but somehow it was not included with slack-current. Compiling 1.5.43 with the slackbuild script fixes the issue.
Now on to the big question. How can this be reported to the Slackware team?
