Very likely. It could be that I am not including some critical d-bus
file/directory in minimyth. It could be that I am compiling d-bus with
some gcc option that causes it to fail. It could be that I am using a
version of d-bus that is not compatible with MythTV. Unfortunately, I
have not upgraded to MythTV 0.25 as (at least at this time) it requires
that I upgrade my home server beyond CentOS 5.8, which (at this time)
means an upgrade to CentOS 6.x.
If anyone familiar with d-bus has any ideas on how to pinpoint the
problem, I would love to know.
