MythTV w/ Feisty Fawn HOWTO

Post by carback1 »

I can't find the original link where I found this, but this worked for me without trouble and I thought I would post it here as it is probably the first place to look:
sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ feisty-proposed restricted main multiverse universe" >> /etc/apt/sources.list'
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -t feisty-proposed mythtv mythweather mythweb
sudo mythtv-setup

At this point, you should just have to redo the channel lineup, changing things appropriately.

sudo mythfilldatabase --replace-all

I did this and all upgraded well.

My only problem is that MythTV refuses to schedule recordings, I can only do manual recordings even though I have schedule data out until 9-21-07.

My current version is 0.20.20070821-1

EDIT:

Found the problem, the version above is busted. I upgraded to the latest version on mythbuntu's repositories and everything magically started working.

I'm getting unmet dependencies:

Code: Select all

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
mythweather is already the newest version.
mythweb is already the newest version.
You might want to run `apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  libmyth-0.20-dev: Depends: libmyth-0.20 (= 0.20.2-0ubuntu0.7.04.1) but 0.20-svn20070223-0.0 is to be installed
  mythtv: Depends: mythtv-database (= 0.20.2-0ubuntu0.7.04.1) but 0.20.2-0.2 is to be installed
          Depends: mythtv-frontend (= 0.20.2-0ubuntu0.7.04.1) but 0.20.2-0.2 is to be installed
          Depends: mythtv-backend (= 0.20.2-0ubuntu0.7.04.1) but 0.20.2-0.2 is to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

. . .any ideas?
