The other option is to create a file in /etc/tmpfiles.d that defines the /var/run/mythtv (or /run/mythtv) directory so that you can then write the PID file to it. >>>> Also, user "mythtv" can't write to the log file in /var/log/mythtv/ >>> >>> Change the ownership of /var/log/mythtv. > > I added "install -d -o mythtv -g mythtv /var/log/mythtv" to %post for > the backend package. Is there a better way to do this? Yes! Create it in the %install section if the spec file and then add it to the files list.
