Sounds right. As you say, before going thru the setup, Ctrl-Alt-F1 to open
up a console, log in as root, make the edits to ZapListing.pm, and save.
Ctrl-Alt-F6 to return to X and continue with the setup. Instead of pasting
over those lines, try manually making the changes. My previous email
introduced line breaks that should not be there. Take a look at the original
note at the following URL (sorry, I posted an incomplete URL before):
There are small changes to two of the lines (the ones that begin with an
exclamation point). So, on line 878, change
and on line 881, change
Hope that is clear, and sorry for the confusion. This did work for me. If
this does not work for you, you may be stuck with the 'apt-get update,
apt-get install xmltv' business.

Hmm, I must still be doing something wrong.
Her's what I did.
Boot from Knopmyth CD
Reboot when prompted.
Go to console configure network by hand drag over this message
and cut and paste the 2nd set of those lines into
/usr/share/XMLTV/ZapListings.pm (replacing the exisitng ones.
Went back to the X session
entered my root paswword at the prompt
ran through the setup.
But, again when I entered my zip code, I was offered no choces :-(
Am I doing something wrong?
