[SOLVED] XBMC 10.0 and MySql on Debian 6.0 - trmentry - 2011-03-04 01:41
I was running XBMC Live on 2 little boxes both talking back to a MySql server on my Ubuntu server.
Everything was working fine and the updates of shows watched, etc was sync'ing.
I switched to Windows on the boxes so that I could get some Windows specific goodies running. So clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate on each box. (32bit).
In this process I've decom'ed my Ubuntu server and went to a Debian VM pretty much setup the same way.
When I setup the advancedsettings.xml with teh MySql info, it created the tables in the database with no issues.
However when I go to a directory of Movies and Set the Content... it doesn't update any tables. This is what I could find in the log.
The Windows XBMC box is connecting to a Windows share for the movies, et.c
When I go back in XBMC it doesn't keep the Content settings.
My guess is something to do with the path name having ( ) in it. However this did work on the Live version without issues. And pointing to a directory with no ( ) in the path, does the same thing.

It's because your local paths are win32-styled, and mysql doesn't deal with it (slash character).
Make the paths non-local (eg smb://) and you'll be all good.

Awesome! Worked like a charm.
Thank you very much for the help.
