Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Let's not get carried away... I actually feel pretty dumb when I try to answer some questions on an unfamiliar distro. It's one of those "Well, it's got to be there somewhere, if only it was sitting in front of me I might be able to figure it out..."
And hopefully that solves your compiling problem. There's no Mythtv 0.20.2 packages for PCLinuxOS yet?
Ok ok... I installed the missing file using synaptic (actually, I looked up every mythtv instances and installed everything) and I got it to work.
Well part of it. You see, when I click on the mythtv icon, I have a screen that fires up, that looks like a setup screen to me, and when I click on finish, that's it. The window closes, and nothing appears.
This is the command you asked me, although I don't think there is a problem now that it loads.
