KnoppMyth Install Screencast

KnoppMyth is a linux distribution that tries to make the installation of MythTV and Linux as easy as possible. KnoppMyth R5E50 is the first KnoppMyth release to be based on MythTV 0.20.
I installed KnoppMyth R5E50 in about 20 minutes and have created a screencast of the process. The video in the screencast has been edited down to a little less than nine minutes.
The screencast starts at the first screen once the install cd is booted up. I selected the default boot parameters at the lilo prompt by hitting enter at the lilo prompt.
In general, the installation for me was very straightforward, with the exception of two things:
  1. Time and Date - I had to select my timezone and date twice. Not sure why that was needed, and maybe that will be fixed in a future release.
  2. mythtvsetup - It put me into mythtvsetup twice. Again, I'm not sure why. The second time, I just hit escape to exit it and things worked out fine.
These may be issues that will get worked out in a future release. I know the first MythTV 0.20 release of MythDora went through a few bugfix iterations once released, KnoppMyth may be similar. It may not install this well for everybody or all systems, but at least in some situations, it's possible to go from a cold boot to an installed and working KnoppMyth MythTV system in about 20 minutes.
This site also has a screencast of a MythDora 3 install and other information about getting started with MythTV. If you're ready to get started installing KnoppMyth, visit the Official KnoppMyth Homepage.

The reason for the second run...

Cool! The reason it runs mythtv-setup twice is to to help speed up the installation process. If you complete steps 1 - 4 (really, 2 - 4 as one is already done for you) in the setup, the first time mythfilldatabase would run, it would get 13 days of listings. When mythtv-setup first runs, you should complete steps 1 -3 and exit. After this, we have mythfilldatabase run and only get one day's worth of listings. When you return to mythtv-setup, complete step 4 (and 5 if you need to scan for channels. There should be no need for this with "SD" tuners) and exit. We then rerun mythfilldatabase in the background to grab the other 12 days while the configuration continues. By doing this, the configuration time is cut down.

problem: respawning too fast

If you are facing the above mentioned problem, it is likely that installation has detected the graphics card wrong. You need to edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf and put correct values there. If you are using nvidia graphics it would be good idea to install the latest drivers from nvidia web page.

When KnoppMyth was

When KnoppMyth was announced, it was definitely one of the most anticipated things to have ever come for Linux in my arguable opinion and I think that KnoppMyth is far more than about Linux. As a matter of fact, it is Myth TV that Knoppmyth is concentrating about and I think that the recent version is much better and faster than Knoppmyth R5E50 in my arguable opinion especially because of the fact that it makes the installation of both MythTV and Linux faster!Call Center

KnoppMyth

On the one hand, KnoppMyth is a Linux is a full fledged Debian based Linux distribution designed intended for a dedicated MythTV system. It will format your hard drive, install Linux, MythTV, and leave things so that the system acts as a dedicated MythTV “appliance.” With many hardware choices, the KnoppMyth install is very quick and straightforward. I’ve done it in about 20 minutes on hardware that is a few years old. View the screencast. The other way to use KnoppMyth is as a MythTV Frontend booted from the CD. This is a great way to temporarily make another PC on your network a temporary MythTV viewing client. The nice thing about this is that it does not modify anything on the hard disk, and doesn’t require installation. I've read it in one of essay topics . When using the bootable CD as a MythTV frontend, you will need to enter some information about your networking, and provide information on how to connect to your MythTV Backend. Either way you use it, KnoppMyth solves a very useful problem. In general, MythTV can be rather complicated to install and configure. With KnoppMyth, you won’t have to deal with getting all the software components MythTV requires installed, working together, and configured. KnoppMyth handles all of that for you.

Many people get started with

Many people get started with MythTV start on a low end (usually older) system, then upgrade once they see how well it works. If you have an older 1Ghz or better system you can dedicate to this, that'll probably be plenty.
