Again, I know nothing about knoppmyth, I don't know if the sources are
installed when you install knoppmyth or not, but here is how you would
typically do it on any distro.
1) you need the source code for myth. If it's not already included when you
install knoppmyth, you can download the stable version from mythtv.org, or if
you want the lates unstable version, you can donwload it using subversion
(svn.mythtv.org). All the instructions are at
2) Once, you have the sources, you can patch them with any patches available
that you think may be usefull, like the diseqc patch. (instructions were in
the last email)
3) ou can run ./configure --help to get a list of available options first,
then you run "./configure [options] && qmake modulename && make && make
install". I'm not sure how knopmyth sets the path and where it installs to so
you don't end up with two copies of myth on your system. You may want to
check with them as to what is the right way of doing it.
