This is a Tutorial to installing MythTV on a new installed Debian SID Machine.

Getting the necessary Debian Packages

now at first we need the mysql server:

apt-get install mysql-server

now set the mysql root user password

mysqladmin -u root password yourpasswordhere

at next step we need to add 2 more sources to our sources.list

deb ftp://ftp.nerim.net/debian-marillat/ sid  main
deb-src ftp://ftp.nerim.net/debian-marillat/ sid  main

now we can get the rest of the needed package to build myth via:

apt-get update
apt-get build-dep mythtv

Getting MythTV

Now you can get mythtv sources, but unless you have a really good reason to use the latest version from sid maybe you should just:

apt-get install mythtv

and if you want extras you can search for them with apt-cache search mythtv

If you really insist building yourself:

add your user to the staff group so you get write permission to usr/local now after logging in as a user (DON'T USE ROOT) do this:

svn co http://cvs.mythtv.org/svn/trunk/mythtv

This creates a folder called mythtv where the actual sources are in.

cd mythtv

and compile it with something like:

 ./configure --prefix=/usr/local --arch=athlon-xp --enable-dvb --enable-dvb-eit
make
make install

The configure line above is only an example. In this example, the installation is configured to be under /usr/local. If you want to put it somewhere else, you can alter the --prefix argument. Run ./configure --help to see what options are available and necessary for you.

Starting MythTV

now you can setup mythbackend via mythtv-setup.
