MD 5 install, restoring a MD4 database
I have to reinstall my system. I had a working MD4 box, but the MB died. Got a new board, and put the old drive in it, and it refuses to boot. LVM error. See here (http://mythdora.com/?q=node/3412) if interested.
Anyway, I can access the LVM's on the old drive via a knoppix boot cd. I have copied off all my videos, and recordings. I have also copied off the daily DB backups that were done. THANK YOU FOR DOING THIS BY DEFAULT!!! :)
So long story short, I have to use the old data drive for the new install. I don't have any other sata drives laying around.
How can I install on the new system and get all my old data back. From reading up, I can do the new install, copy my recorded shows over to /storage/recordings, drop the mythconverge database, recreate it from the backup(a backup was done a less then 24 hours before the crash, lucky me), then restart myth. From what I read, myth will upgrade the DB to the new schema if needed correct?
I am just trying to find a way to do this as painless as possible. And it gives me a good reason to go to MD5. Any help would be appreciated.
