Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1030318
xine channels.conf location moved
Last modified: 2013-11-14 15:17:05 EST
Description of problem:
When selecting DVB fromn the UI in xine I get the message "No valid channels.conf found" and the UI locks up, it needs to be killed. Confusing as I had one that looked correct in ~/.xine/
I have found that you need to put the channels.conf file into ~/.config/xine-lib/
This is a problem that needs to be passed upstream I would think. Debian has a similar problem reorted (http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=702580) but this is for a different version of xine-lib
It is not a major issue. Just people need to be aware of the location that channels.conf should be placed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put channels.conf in ~/.xine/
2. Start xine
3. Select DVB
Move channels.conf file to ~/.config/xine-lib/channels.conf and everything works as expected
xine-lib is no longer in fedora, please report to bugzilla.rpmfusion.org instead.
That, plus I'm sure this is an intentional change (following modern-day freedesktop.org specifications rather than legacy Unix conventions), not a bug at all. 1.2 is a major new version, there are years of development between 1.1 and 1.2.
