I am working on it. I installed ivtv last night and will be doing the MythTV install tomorrow. What distribution are you using? Do you already have your capture card working? Does cat /dev/video > my.mpg create a video file? What is the error you are getting?

A little more info and I am sure myself or someone else can figure out where you are stuck..

First of all, please don't BUMP your thread before 24 hours
without a comment have passed ... it's against the rules

To answer your question:

You don't have the multi-threading library for
Qt installed ... or at least not in a place where
your linker can see it.


Cheers,
Tink

Sorry bout the BUMP, just a bit frustrated. Heres what I did with QT. went to the site, downloaded qt-x11-free-3.3.3.tar.gz. gunzipped, and untarred it, did ./config, then make, then make install. After that, i was able to make the makefile for mythtv. im not sure where I went wrong, any ideas? ill be patient this time (sorry, i tend to not read the rules)

I don't understand why you bump, though :)

To me it looks as if the problem was solved,
or am I reading you incorrectly?


Cheers,
Tink

I still wouldn't have known why you bumped - you
said it worked?

It tells you the name ... prepend that with lib
and search on google.com/linux ...

In your example:
Code:
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lqt-mt
you'd strip the -l and prepend it with lib, getting
libqt-mt ...

http://www.google.com/linux?hl=en&q=...a=lr%3Dlang_en
If you're using a particular distro you may want to
include the name, if you want to compile from source
add the word source or src or tar.gz or tar.bz2 to your
search... you get the idea.

How do you make what link?

what i ment to say was after typing make in the mythtv directory, it gave me the error...

Code:
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lqt-mt
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[4]: *** [libmythavcodec-0.16.so.0.16.0] Error 1
make[4]: Leaving directory `/root/qtttt/qt-x11-free-3.3.3/qmake/libs/libavcodec'make[3]: *** [sub-libavcodec] Error 2

make[1]: *** [src-qmake] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/qtttt/qt-x11-free-3.3.3'
make: *** [init] Error 2

the problem I have now, is that when I type rpm -i qt-3.3.2-2.sh4.rpm, it gives
Code:
        package qt-3.3.2-2 is intended for a sh4 architecture
        package qt-3.3.3-8 (which is newer than qt-3.3.2-2) is already installed        file /usr/lib/qt-3.3/lib/libqt-mt.so.3 from install of qt-3.3.2-2 conflicts with file from package qt-3.3.3-8
        file /usr/lib/qt-3.3/lib/libqt-mt.so.3.3 from install of qt-3.3.2-2 conflicts with file from package qt-3.3.3-8
        file /usr/lib/qt-3.3/lib/libqui.so.1.0.0 from install of qt-3.3.2-2 conflicts with file from package qt-3.3.3-8
but when i type rpm -U qt-3.3.2-2.sh4.rpm, it gives me

Code:
        package qt-3.3.2-2 is intended for a sh4 architecture
        package qt-3.3.3-8 (which is newer than qt-3.3.2-2) is already installed
How do i "uninstall" my previous install of QT? when I originally installed QT, i used qt-x11-free-3.3.3.tar.gz.

Thanks

MythTV guide

This guide is the best reference to MythTV. I was able to follow it and have my system running mythtv in just a few hours.
I hope this helps you all.
