Hello once more one and all.

I would like to run MythTV on my CC5 server. Manly because this mean's i only have to run the one computer 24 hour's a day. I belive i only whant to run the backend on it as im not realy planning on using the CC box for play back.

So far iv followed the How To found on the old CC site. Now iv been able to follow this ok ish.

At first i got as far as
"Configure your MythTV backend by running mythtv-setup by using SSH X forwarding, or the old school remote X way (DISPLAY=192.168.2.202:0 mythtv-setup)."
This stoped me for a while as i could not get this command to run via ssh.
After a few weeks i decided to install X using the instruction to install MythTV-Frontend, this finaly allowed me to run mythtv-setup localy on CC.

This is where iv got a little lost as to what to do next. I suppose what i want is an idiots guide for CentOS 5 if any one could point me in the right direction. Or if some one could do a more in depth How To for CC that would be grate.

Thanks in advance for any input from any one

    When I trun
    yum --enablerepo=clearos-core install mythtv
    I get following errors, any idea how to resolve them? it is on 6.6

    You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem

    Where is mythtv now?

    I can't seem to find it in the clearos-test repo?

    Hi Duncan,

    Bit by bit, I'm rolling out a media solution in my house. Right now I have an XBMC frontend (ClearOS 6 on a MacMini) and plan on building out a MythTV backend (ClearOS on a server). As of just this weekend, a good chunk of the media stack was migrated to ClearOS. This means you should be able to install MythTV by:

    1) Installing the ATrpms repo from http://packages.atrpms.net/dist/el6/atrpms-repo/ (32-bit or 64-bit)

    2) Running:

    # yum --enablerepo=clearos-test install mythtv

    I know this sounds like utter madness, but have you restarted in a while?

    I seem to think that when ever this type of error happens to me a restart will more offen than not clear it!

    Restart and try to install again.

    and all ways stick with it.

    MythTV is trying to install perl-XML-SAX-Base, but the version of perl-XML-SAX-Base it is trying to install requires a version of perl-XML-SAX greater than 0.99.

    You have two choices. Either find a version of perl-XML-SAX > 0.99 and hope it works with the rest of ClearOS (it probably will) or find an earlier version of perl-XML-SAX-Base which is compatible with perl-XML-SAX-0.96-7 and still compatible with MythTV. The second option is probably safer but I don't know what MythTV's requirements are. You will need to query the package (have a look at the yum manual to see how).

    Thanks but I must do not understand the error.
    My understanding was that there was a conflict between the two not that the system is missing it ....?

    You'll have to hunt down an rpm, perhaps by using the rpmfind site or atrpms or some of the other sources.

    This is what I get but I am not clear on how to use it :)

    ....

    Repo : clearos-core

    Now I'm home I've had a quick check and I can't see the package anywhere in the ClearOS repos. I have not tried a "whatprovides"
