Don't panic, I have sorted out my boot problems. I have actually learned quite a lot since my last posts, and have successfully set up SuSe to dual-boot and I am learning my way around the operating system. I even managed to install the video card driver and set up my monitor to work at the correct resolution... it took a while but I got there in the end (shows determination.)
However I am still VERY new to shell scripting, and I would like some pointers or recommendations as to how to go about compiling shell scripts.
For example I have downloaded the latest ivtv distro to try and get my pvr 350 tv card to work, and I have also downloaded the latest mythtv distro, however I have NO idea as to how to compile the ivtv distro and incorporate it into my system. It is not distributed as an rpm so I cannot use yast to install it, so at this point I am a bit stuck.
Any friendly advice at this point would be most welcome.
edit: Actually if somebody could point me in the right direction as to how the shell scripting actually works I think that maybe I could pick it up from there. I have no idea which directories are used or where things should go at the moment so please forgive...
