MythTV .30 and Linux: hdhomerun_discover_find_devices_custom_v2

This is likely a MythTV library problem, but I thought I'd report it here in case others run into it.

I'll report any progress or fixes I make.

After upgrading from Fedora 27 to Fedora 30, with an upgrade to MythTV-30, the back end die with an error suggesting they're having trouble:

symbol lookup error: /lib64/ undefined symbol: hdhomerun_discover_find_devices_custom_v2

mythtv-setup dies when I enter the Capture Cards section, with the same error.

The SD-supplied (but compiled locall) config tool dies on me as well:

Code: Select all

root@mythtwo hdhomerun_config_gui]# hdhomerun_config_gui
hdhomerun_config_gui: symbol lookup error: hdhomerun_config_gui: undefined symbol: hdhomerun_discover_find_devices_custom_v2
The simple command-line tool does find the silicon dust unit:

Code: Select all

hdhomerun_config discover
hdhomerun device 13189752 found at
I can also connect to it via browser.

Anyone else run into this? I'll keep you informed . . .

The function comes from libhdhomerun, and that particular function is present in the 'hdhomerun_discover.[hc]' source file. In fact, that function has been in the library for years.

Try building a new version of libhdhomerun from source, as perhaps the RedHat/Fedora packagers haven't been maintaining their packages ...
