One of the members of LQ meant to give you a response and it didn't make it here. So here is what they said:

are you sure that there is not an equivalent program which you could install through YasT or with an RPM, automagically?
Or maybe there is a RPM or Yast-module for tvtime? I don't know ...
I'm just saying that Yast and rpm's are the easy way to go when you are new to linux.
