mythtv-common doesn't seem to pull in anything at all in YaST but is itself pulled in by mythtv-setup. I'll do a bit more reading until my card arrives and try to make some notes when I do set it up.
Most of the documentation refers to mysql; does it work out of the box with mariadb instead, do you know? My experience with mysql just predates the mariadb split, and my dvb experience is even older.
Mine is installed with mysql, but I see mariadb was available too at the time. I have both mysql and mariadb installed in a number of places, I have yet to notice any incompatibilities. I know there are some minor ones, I just haven't hit any of them yet.
I doubt if you'll notice much difference between the two - maybe in the initial setup work, but not in the database ops. If I were doing a new installation today, I think I would probably try it with mariadb first.
My test install of MythTV used mariadb-10
I just got my TBS6205 card and started trying to install it and mythtv. I'm a bit worried by the ReadMe.txt that comes with the TBS6205 driver zip. It starts with:
#sudo rm -rf /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/media/
which seems like a rather drastic thing to do. Is that a normal thing to do? The file then goes on to say:
#tar jxvf media_build-2018-0206.tar.bz2 #cd media_build #./install.sh #reboot
#dmesg | grep tbsversion
I'm waiting to be approved to post a question on the TBS forum but I thought I'd ask here first. The good news is that the card is installed and listed by lspci and that mythtv appeared to install OK from YaST.
