Sometimes I've been known to line up Wagon after Wagon after Wagon....
However, I only have one horse!
What to do?
I have to run my horse around alot and as a result I get very little finished, but the opposite is true, I get a lot started!
My Solution for more balance!
I enjoy creating and building, but in an effort to finish more I'll try to stop building so many Wagons!
I've finally got a good qt48 4.8.5 package working for mythtv-0.27X.
Most of the issue(from 30K feet view) was related to shared libraries and linkage with phonon.
With the upgrade to the new qt 4.8.5, all is now well with ELmythOS on EL6 with MythTV!
Expect to see a new ELmythOS REPO releases for EL6/EL7 very soon...Including the new QT48 REPO!
All versions of mythtv up to current should now compile and run properly (with the right Qt/phonon combination).
I'm switching over the build system to el7 as the base. It's time!
XFS can be default fs.
I'm currently testing mythtv-0.25.X and mythtv-0.27.X
Once the "ELmythOS 7" repo is released, I'll be cleaning out everything(all old repos)to start fresh again.
Hopefully sometime in Sept/Oct I'll have a repo ready for mythtv-0.25.X and mythtv-0.27.X
mythtv-0.25.X will be my "stable" verion of mythtv for "ELmythOS 7" until I can test 0.27.X further.... read more
I've delayed the 25.4 release until I test some more. I just disabled the database logging via /etc/sysconfig/mythbackend:--nodblog
This is the default with future releases(0.27+) anyway.
If your mythserver 25 runs good at first ...........until the db starts populating and filling up the tables, check to make sure you have db logging via database disabled.
It's been a while since I posted so I'll add what I've been doing.
*Creating rpms that are compatible with ATRPMS/RPMfusion
I started out intending on 3 versions but that's too much work.
So I've started the "OUT OF TREE" EL6 build for mythtv.
I have a working QT48/Webkit/Phonon* and mythtv-0.25.3 relocated to
/opt/elmythos right now and I'm testing it.
I'm going to continue working on this isolated buildtree. ... read more

My PowerPC died so as a result I have no PPC Dev box. I'm abandoning the PPC project and focusing on x86_64/x86 and ARM.
After rebuilding with QT4.8.4 WebKit, Mythbrowser got bumped up to Webkit 534.34
Here's the browser agent info after the update to QT4.8.4:

Comparing to official to Apple/WebKit/Safari releases puts us @ >5.06 and <5.1

I recently forked a new mythtv 25.3 RPM spec. I'll upload that to "Files" soon.
I ran into an old 25.3 bug with WebKit 2.1.1, a downgrade to 2.0.X resolved the problem for now.
Next I'll continue customizing the upstream vendor RPMS with some artwork for ELmythOS.
I will try to keep posts here of my progress of where I'm at in the process here.
I'm recompiling/customizing the Vendor released SRPMS for the base. I'll do the same with SRPMS for mythtv 25.3 next.
I'm doing all this manually at the cmd line for the learning experience. I may change over to using something like "Revisor" in the future.
I'd like to thank RedHat, Scientific Linux and Axel Thimm(ATRPMS) for making the SRPMS and the SPEC files available. Of course without all of the FSF products from the FSF...none of this would be here! Thanks Richard.... read more
