Time.png Outdated: Its easier to follow Patching and building from source from the Mythbuntu recipes

It took me about two hours to come up with these steps from start to finished packages.

extract from

these steps will output the packages in ~

  • edit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mythbuntu-repos.list and duplicate the "apt" lines to "apt-src" lines
  • install debuild: sudo apt-get install ubuntu-dev-tools
  • install edit-patch: sudo apt-get install quilt
  • install git: sudo apt-get install git
  • get the source: LC_ALL=C apt-get source mythtv
  • get the patch: wget -q'n'that/here-be-the-patch
  • change to the source tree: cd mythtv-*
  • apply the patch: edit-patch ~/thepatch.diff
  • install all dependencies: sudo apt-get build-dep mythtv
  • build the packages: debuild -i -us -uc -b

and then you install it, try out test the patch and report back on the ticket
