This package is intended to track the latest stable MythTV fixes branch. Currently this is fixes/32.

Whenever a commit is made by MythTV's git upstream you can rebuild this package without waiting for an update. Please don't flag it as out of date just because there's a new commit. I'll push updates whenever a packaging change is needed for the build to work.

Important Note on AUR packages in general:

For AUR packages, you - as the user installing the package - assume the role that a package maintainer has for regular repo packages.

That means that the responsibility to recompile the package whenever a package B that your package depends on changes. For repo packages, maintainers do this for you and re-release the package with an updated build number (e.g. -1 to -2). AUR mainainers will not do this, because there is no change to the PKGBUILD. You need to recompile locally, whenever this happens.

I went back to a fresh system and before running yay -S mythtv, I installed both python-requests-cache and python-pyqt5-webengine. This time Metadata Lookup works after a program is recorded. So it looks like both of those packages should be moved to the required list.

There maybe a dependency missing. I installed with yay -S mythtv python-requests-cache. Python-requests-cache is an optional dependency needed for User Job Metadata Lookup. However, after this build the Metadata Lookup failed with exit code 128. /usr/share/mythtv/metadata/Television/ -t reports everything in order so something else is wrong.

is python-pyqt5-webengine a required dependency now ?

jfabernathy commented on 2023-01-09 00:20 (UTC)

I just spun up a VM and yay -S mythtv and it flew thru the dependencies. So not sure what replaced qt5-webkit but it's building quicker now.

@delx, perhaps I don't understand something here, but shouldn't just using yay get the updated version?

delx commented on 2023-01-08 22:57 (UTC)

Hi, I updated the package back on 27th Dec to remove that dependency. Try doing a git pull :-)

schasj commented on 2023-01-07 21:04 (UTC)

Thank you, @mark.clegg and @jfabernathy. I went with the python-pyqt5-webengine package as the path of least resistance and it's working normally again.

Here's hoping that @delx will fix the dependency.

jfabernathy commented on 2023-01-05 19:44 (UTC)

I found that some packages that depend on qt5-webkit now use python-pyqt5-webengine. To avoid the 5 hour compile I replace qt5-webkit and since it's binary it built like it use to. Everything works, so if there's a problem doing this I'm not aware of it.

mark.clegg commented on 2023-01-05 17:20 (UTC)

@schasj: qt5-webkit is in AUR, and will replace your missing Be warned though - it's a big build - expect several hours compilation.

mythbackend has stopped working recently and the journal shows

/usr/bin/mythbackend: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Qt5WebKit has been removed from Arch repos recently with no cited replacement. I don't know what needs to change to get mythbackend working again.
