Goodbye Mythtv

I knew there was a reason I hadn't updated my system in a while, it wanted install rubbish I don't want.

Transaction Summary

Remove       19 Package(s)

Installed size: 161 M
Is this ok [y/N]: 

All I can say is "What the Deuce?"

I'm pretty sick of fighting with this type of bullshit. Why the fuck is anything depending on that PackageKit crap?

So yes, it is ok to remove that snot - it's only a console that saves me walking into the next room to set what i'm going to record anyway. And it's only tv. wodim is easier to use than k3b for burning isos for that matter.How poetic ... (just arrived in email):

Later ...

So this episode got me searching for a blacklist option, and I found the exclude option for yum.

Yay!

    exclude=PackageKit
    exclude=pulseaudio

It seems it had something to do with the phonone-backend-gstreamer and there are alternatives which don't need such rubbish.

Never did like gstreamer ...

Chances are the mythtv guys have changed the database format again, so i might hold off on trying to install it anyway: i've had enough excitement for one day. The secret is N-tier architecture guys ...
