Installing MythTV SVN on Debian Sid
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
now we can get the rest of the needed package to build myth via:
apt-get update apt-get build-dep 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:
This creates a folder called mythtv where the actual sources are in.
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.
now you can setup mythbackend via mythtv-setup.
