How to enable debug logging

Added by Peter Brockamp 13 days ago

Hello,

unfortunately I'm experiencing regular crashes on TVH:

I understand that I need to enable debugging to have it generate a usable stack trace. However I did not find out how to properly do it. I don't have time to compile tvh from source with debug enabled myself, so I was hoping I could add a debug version from a repository. However I couldn't find any link for this. Is there any instructions how to enable debug? As far as I understood it's not sufficient to enable debug in the GUI as the standard executables are lacking the symbol information. So what do I need to do? BTW, I'm on debian stretch. I was using jessie before, having the same problems with crashes, so it shouldn't be an issue of the distro.

Good news, it's really simple. Just install tvheadend-dbg and restart tvh.
