    Set appropriate permissions so vdr is allowed to write to it's video directory.

    2. vdr: error while reading '/var/lib/vdr/config/sources.conf'
    3. vdr: error while reading '/var/lib/vdr/config/channels.conf'
  • which is video directory ?


    i run vdr with command

    Code
    1. vdr -c config -v video -Pxineliboutput

    Well, if you take a look at the vdr manpage it should be quite obvious...

    man vdr wrote:
    Code
    1. -v dir, --video=dir
    2. Use dir as video directory. The default is /video.

    seahawk1986 sorry if i can't good understand your speaks. i am new on vdr . i search on web , unfortunately i can't find guide for compile vdr step by step .
    for video directory as you say. look when vdr say "vdr: can't access video directory video" means vdr havn't permission to acsses video directory . man page say "Use dir as video directory. The default is /video" i make dir video on root partition but vdr have issue again "vdr: can't access video directory video" . then i go to vdr directory and make dir video and run again vdr and issue disappeared.but i get two new issue

    Code
    1. aoa@aoa-Lenovo-G500:~/vdr-2.0.6$ vdr -c config -v video -Pxineliboutput
    2. vdr: error while reading 'config/sources.conf'
    3. vdr: error while reading 'config/channels.conf'
  • If you execute the command "vdr -c config -v video -Pxineliboutput" within the directory "~/vdr-2.0.6" the vdr expects that there is a directory ~/vdr-2.0.6/video (because you are using a relative path) and that it has write permissions on it.

    aoa@aoa-Lenovo-G500:~/vdr-2.0.6$ vdr -c config -v video -Pxineliboutput
    vdr: error while reading 'config/sources.conf'
    vdr: error while reading 'config/channels.conf'

    The later error message shows, that your config directory (which is ~/vdr-2.0.6/config because you are using a relative path for it, too) is either non existent or does not contain the mentioned files.


    Have you read the INSTALL file? There is an exact description what you need to set up and what steps to follow if you want to run the vdr within the folder you did compile it in: http://projects.vdr-developer.…tree/INSTALL?h=stable/2.0

  • man page say "Use dir as video directory. The default is /video" i make dir video on root partition but vdr have issue again "vdr: can't access video directory video"

    This is only true if you compiled the vdr using "make ONEDIR=1" - to see the real default paths run

    Code
    1. vdr -h
