Fedora 12 x86_64 MythTV v0.22 Backend Server

An as-built document for a Fedora 12 MythTV backend server.

The machine is running Fedora 8 i386 with MythTV v0.21 backend. The purpose of this upgrade is to move to a 64bit OS, with the new MythTV 0.22 to support VDPAU on the front end, thus allowing support for HD terrestrial TV.

The hardware is:

  • an old dual CPU Tyan S2882 motherboard with single core Opterons
  • 7 500GB disks in a software RAID 6 configuration
  • a 512Meg compact flash card in a SATA adapter (boot disk)
  • 2 DVB-S tuners
  • 4 DVB-T tuners


Base Operating system

Install Fedora 12 on the machine with the minimum number of packages.

LVM is used across the RAID 6 array. A 16Gbyte volume is used for the EXT4 root filesystem, and another few GBytes for swap. The remainder is used as a XFS volume for the video. The compact flash device is used for a EXT3 /boot volume (as it is not possible to boot from a Linux software raid 6 volume with LVM).


The anaconda installer doesn't (appear to) support bonding and/or vlan configuration. The computer is attached to the local LAN with the two GbE interfaces bonded using 802.3ad, and IPv4/IPv6 addresses on VLAN id 112. The MTU is set to 9000 bytes (jumbo).

Manually install the vconfig package from the installation media, as a minimal install doesn't include the this package (and it is required for a VLAN tagged interface).

# rpm -Uvh vconfig-1.9-8.fc12.x86_64.rpm

 Add a '/etc/modprobe.d/bond0.conf' configuration for the bonded interfaces

alias bond0 bonding
options bond0 mode=802.3ad lacp_rate=fast miimon=100


# IPv4

# IPv6


# no ipv4/ipv6 addresses


# no ipv4/ipv6 addresses





# IPv4

# IPv6


# .2 is the primary IP address, and caching DNS server
# .3 internal authoritive DJB DNS server



Once the network is up, it is possible to apply all Fedora updates.


Reconfigure the open ssh daemon to only accept public key authentication, and copy user public keys to ~/.ssh/authorized_keys. The configuration for the server '/etc/ssh/sshd_config' is:

Protocol 2
PermitRootLogin  no
PasswordAuthentication  no
ChallengeResponseAuthentication no
KeepAlive no
ClientAliveInterval 15
ClientAliveCountMax 9
SyslogFacility AUTHPRIV
Subsystem       sftp    /usr/libexec/openssh/sftp-server

Note: There was some issue that required a reboot after the updates were applied to get this to authenticate correctly with a public key. Restarting the sshd service did not resolve this issue (and I wanted to pick up the new kernel from the updates).

web proxy

Configure a local web proxy by setting environment variables in /etc/profile.d/

export http_proxy=
export https_proxy=
export ftp_proxy=

disable selinux

edit the /etc/sysconfig/selinux configuration to disable selinux.

base packages

Install and configure the base packages that are useful in this environment.

MythTV Backend

To run a myth backend server, the following components are required:

  • the MythTV backend package
  • MySQL database
  • firmware for the DVB-T cards
  • the setup program to configure the backend
  • a VNC server to allow running the X based setup
  • a web server (lightty)
  • the Myth Web package

ATrpms repository

Install the repository using the supplied RPM package:

# rpm -Uvh
warning: /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.i28YH5: Header V4 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 66534c2b
Preparing...                ########################################### [100%]
   1:atrpms-repo            ########################################### [100%]

After installing the repo perform a 'yum update' to verify the repository is being used, and verify which packages from the base fedora repository are also in the ATrpms repo.

Install the MythTV packages

# yum install mythtv-backend mythtv-setup mythweb mysql-server lighttpd lighttpd-fastcgi \
      x11vnc vnc-server xauth twm xorg-x11-xinit xterm \
       xorg-x11-fonts-100dpi xorg-x11-fonts-75dpi xorg-x11-fonts-Type1

mythtv video filesystem

The video for mythtv is stored on a single XFS filesystem (i.e. the storage management is handled by Linux software RAID and LVM, not MythTV storage groups). Create the mount points:

# mkdir /mnt/{video,store}

Add the following to the /etc/fstab to mount the filesystem.

LABEL=/mnt/video        /mnt/video              xfs     rw              0 0
/mnt/video/store        /mnt/store              none    rw,bind         0 0

Mount the filesystem (mount -a), and verify.


This firmware is required by the DVB-T card. Without the firmware, the driver will complain with the following messages:

kernel: saa7134 0000:03:08.0: firmware: requesting xc3028-v27.fw
kernel: xc2028 4-0061: Error: firmware xc3028-v27.fw not found.[13487]: Cannot find  firmware file 'xc3028-v27.fw'

Udev will also report the missing firmware in '/dev/.udev/firmware-missing/'. Copy the firmware file 'xc3028-v27.fw' to /lib/firmware.


This is a migration from MythTV v0.21, so don't follow the initial database setup, but instead copy the old database into the mysql data directory.

# cp -av mythconverg /var/lib/mysql/

Start the MySql server

# for A in mysqld ; do chkconfig $A on ; service $A start ; done

Reattach the'mythtv' user, as this information is stored in the 'mysql' database (not the 'mythconverg' database).

mysql -u root mythconverg
mysql> grant all on mythconverg.* to mythtv@"" identified by "mythtv";
mysql> grant all on mythconverg.* to mythtv@localhost identified by "mythtv";
mysql> flush privileges;

MythTV setup

The setup program is graphical; however the machine is running headless, so use x11vnc and Xvfb to provide a minimal X environment. TODO: get a cohesive of instructions, and determine what really needs to be done here to have a simple one time run of the program.

Use a VNC client to connect to the machine to run mythtv-setup.

Note: The file ~/.mythtv/mysql.txt must be present. Even with this present, the setup program failed to backup/upgrade the database. Running mythbackend interactively was successful.

# x11vnc -storepasswd
# xinit -- /usr/bin/Xvfb :0 -cc 4 -screen 0 1280x1024x16 &
# x11vnc -display :0 -usepw &
# export DISPLAY=localhost:0
# mythtv-setup


Once the setup/configuration is complete, start the backend server process.

# for A in mythbackend ; do chkconfig $A on ; service $A start ; done

Run mythfilldatabase to populate update the program listing

# mythfilldatabase


Mythweb runs on port 80 in a fire-walled environment, without the need for confidentially or access control. There are no other web services on the machine, so virtual hosting is not required.

Change the ownership of the mythweb files from apache to lightpd

# chown lighttpd.lighttpd -Rv /var/www/html/mythweb

In the main Lighttpd configuration file (/etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf), enable the following modules

  • mod_rewrite
  • mod_setenv
  • mod_fastcgi
  • mod_cgi

Add a mythweb.conf file to /etc/lighttpd/conf.d/

$SERVER["socket"] == ":80" {

    server.document-root = "/var/www/html/mythweb"

    # Requiring authentication is a good idea if the server is publicly
    # accessible.  On a private server this section can be safely removed.
#    auth.backend = "htdigest"
#    auth.backend.htdigest.userfile = "/path/to/htdigest"
#    auth.require = (
#        "/" => (
#            "method"  => "digest",
#            "realm"   => "MythTV",
#            "require" => "valid-user"
#        )
#    )

    # Use fastcgi for the PHP parts
    fastcgi.server = (
        ".php" => ((
            "bin-path" => "/usr/bin/php-cgi",
            "socket"   => "/var/run/lighttpd/mythtv-php-fcgi.socket",
            "broken-scriptfilename" => "enable",
            "bin-environment" => (
                "db_server"   => "localhost",
                "db_name"     => "mythconverg",
                "db_login"    => "mythtv",
                "db_password" => "mythtv"

    # Environment variables for the Perl parts
    setenv.add-environment = (
        "db_server"   => "localhost",
        "db_name"     => "mythconverg",
        "db_login"    => "mythtv",
        "db_password" => "mythtv"

    cgi.assign = (
        ".pl"  => "/usr/bin/perl"

    url.rewrite-once = (
        "^/(css|data|images|js|themes|skins|[a-z_]+\.(php|pl)).*" => "$0",
        "^/(pl(/.*)?)$" => "/$1",
        "^/(.+)$"       => "/mythweb.php/$1",
        "^/(.*)$"       => "/mythweb.php"

    index-file.names           = ("mythweb.php", "index.php", "index.html", "index.htm", "default.htm")

Add lighttpd to the apache group, so that that it can read the mythweb content (otherwise the ownership will need to be changed every time mythweb is updated, and reverts back to being owned by apache.apache).

# usermod -a -G apache lighttpd

Start the server

# for A in lighttpd ; do chkconfig $A on ; service $A start ; done

 Mysql first time startup

Initializing MySQL database:  Installing MySQL system tables...
Filling help tables...

To start mysqld at boot time you have to copy
support-files/mysql.server to the right place for your system

To do so, start the server, then issue the following commands:

/usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root password 'new-password'
/usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root -h password 'new-password'

Alternatively you can run:

which will also give you the option of removing the test
databases and anonymous user created by default.  This is
strongly recommended for production servers.

See the manual for more instructions.

You can start the MySQL daemon with:
cd /usr ; /usr/bin/mysqld_safe &

You can test the MySQL daemon with
cd /usr/mysql-test ; perl

Please report any problems with the /usr/bin/mysqlbug script!
