|Compiling MythTV 0.19 for Ubuntu Dapper|
I've been finding that MythTV is really unreliable after dist-upgrading from Breezy to Dapper. In fact, it's been crashing six or seven times a day, which has been really annoying. I figured I though therefore bight the bullet and upgrade to the latest stable version of MythTV. I was previously running a SVN snapshot because it fixed a couple of bugs I was having when I first installed Myth.
Installation was pretty easy. First, grab the one or two libraries you're missing and that the configure script doesn't necessarily detect the dependency for properly:
sudo apt-get install mesa-common-dev libgl1-mesa-dev libglu1-mesa-dev \ libqt3-mt-dev libqt4-dev mesa-common-dev qt3-apps-dev libglu1-mesa fftw3 \ fftw3-dev libsdl1.2-dev festival festival-dev libdvdread3 libdvdread3-dev
And then the usual configure, make, make install in the mythtv and mythplugins directories.
