I'd like to install v0.28 of MythTV-Frontend onto a new Ubuntu 18.04 box rather than the bionic repo's v0.29.

This machine is a remote frontend to my HTPC which is running MythTV 0.28 (on Ubuntu 16.04) and I don't want to update that at this time.

There is a mythbuntu ppa but it suggest it only runs on 'artful' and earlier systems - is it worth playing with this?

  • Mint is not an official Ubuntu flavor, so is off-topic here. If you want to ask about Ubuntu and Mint, please ask on Unix & Linux instead, otherwise please edit your question to focus on Ubuntu. – wjandrea Aug 10 '18 at 17:56
  • Why not update the HTPC to use version 29 via PPA? mythbuntu.org/repos – jarno Sep 2 '18 at 13:15
  • Oh, maybe because of this: askubuntu.com/q/944270/21005 – jarno Sep 2 '18 at 13:33
  • Hi Jarno. I'm still scarred by my experience upgrading from 0.27 to 0.28 which ended with a complete new build of 0.28. I love MythTV, but it's a common comment - when its working leave it alone! The 0.28 primary frontend/backend is really stable and needs virtually no maintenance, so I don't want to touch it. I just want to update a secondary frontend to Ubuntu 18.04 (as it's used for other things as well) but still run 0.28 frontend on it. – MikeDP Sep 3 '18 at 18:33
