|MythBuntu 8.10 just made me sad|
I figured it was time to give MythBuntu a try, so I set up a MythBuntu 8.10 instance in VirtualBox today. That was a mistake. I'm not 100% sure I understand how it happened, but MythBuntu somehow managed to delete my entire mythconverg MySQL database instance. Not pleased. I've restored it from last night's backup, but now I'll need to recover recordings which happened today, assuming I can be bothered.
I'm writing this just as a warning to others -- if you're playing with MythBuntu, backup your MySQL instance if its not a test one.
