I notice that something has set up a system user 'mythtv' but I don't know exactly how setup is done. Should I su to that user before I start?
Funny how documentation is always an after-thought....
When suse moved to systemd, I don't think the yast informational tips/descriptions, etc.. received a rework. At least with systemd it is just about as easy to manage from the command-line as the init scripts were.
In the case of a service like mariadb, it's just a
systemctl status mariadb ## is it enabled/running?
systemctl enable mariadb ## will now start on boot systemctl start mariadb ## start it now, since it wasn't on boot
(process works in reverse with 'stop' and 'disable' to have it no longer start at boot)
Glad to see you are making progress with MythTV. It's sounds like a rather large and sprawling setup -- made more challenging based on the kernel backports.
