This is an Tutorial on 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

and of course the config of the mysql server in the current sid is also broken we need to fix it. open the my.cnf in /etc/mysql and add a "#" for the following lines:

#old passwords

now edit the debian.cnf and enter a valid mysql root user account.

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

deb sid  main
deb-srv sid  main

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

apt-get update
apt-get install subversion subversion-tools kde-base liblame0 liblame-dev libqt3-headers libmysqlclient10-dev libvorbis-dev libartsc0-dev libasound2-dev libqt3-mt-dev libqt3-mt-mysql phpmyadmin xmltv devscripts liblircclient-dev liblircclient0 libdvdnav-dev libflac-dev libmad0-dev libcdaudio0-dev libcdparanoia0-dev libid3tag0-dev fftw-dev libsdl1.2-dev kdelibs4-dev libdvdread3-dev festival-dev festival libxml-simple-perl libdvdcss2 ffmpeg transcode w32codecs xvid4conf avidemux dvdstyler libxinerama-dev libxxf86vm-dev libtiff4-dev

Getting MythTV

Now you can get mythtv:

svn co

This creates a folder calld mythtv wher the actual sources are in.

cd mythtv

and compile it via:

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

The configure line above is only a example, wich i used on my system. Run ./configure --help to see what options are aviable and nesecary for you.

Starting MythTV

now you can setup mythbackend via mythtv-setup.
