vdr-plugin-live: Some bug fixes for LIVE

Added by tadi over 11 years ago

Due to some bug reports on the german site there have been some recent changes in the LIVE plugin:

  • Fix for build error when tntnet-config reports a version which contains the string 'pre'.
  • Fix for the no longer supported vlc.log object in the 1.0 series of the firefox vlc plugin.
  • Reduced the effect a workaround for a bug in has on the displaying of EPG images.

More details can be found in the Git commit messages.

I consider this Git version of LIVE stable enough to be used in VDR/LINUX distributions.

Project Management: downtimes

Added by etobi over 11 years ago

During the last weeks the high load produced by scripts / spiders or whatever sometimes caused the MySQL server to run out of memory and shut down. Only the project management site was affected, not the GIT repositories.

I did some package upgrades and after an uptime of 275 days, needed to reboot the server.

As soon as the problem with the MySQL server happens again, I will probably replace it.

If you experience any problems with, please drop me a mail (projects<AT>e-tobi<DOT>net)
