Hi everyone,

I'm starting a mythtv plugin, and following the hello world guide just
to get things started won't compile using the instructions.  I've
followed this guide to the letter:


I'm using FC13 in a VMWare session to ensure everything is on a clean
build.  Mythtv and all plugins compiled and installed fine, but when
running make on my plugin, I get the following errors:

g++ -c -pipe -fomit-frame-pointer -pthread -g -Wall -Wno-switch
-Wpointer-arith -Wredundant-decls -Wno-non-virtual-dtor
-fvisibility-inlines-hidden -Wmissing-declarations
-fomit-frame-pointer -D_REENTRANT -Wall -W -DPIC -fPIC -D_GNU_SOURCE
-DPREFIX="/usr/local" -DMMX -Di386 -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64

main.cpp:12:28: error: mythmainwindow.h: No such file or directory
main.cpp:15:21: error: mythnzb.h: No such file or directory

The errors continue, but it's most likely those messed up include
paths, though I'm not sure what I've done to cause it.  Everything was
installed fresh, with the default "configure" for both mythtv and

Any help would be appreciated.
