I'm not so sure about that. I'm trying to compile it like all other plugins
using Gentoo ebuild scripts. I think mythburn-ui requires the MythTV main
source code. I don't think that is how the other plugins work.

Is that how the other plugins work? AFAIK they only need the mythplugins
source. I'm running 0.19-fixes from a few days ago. The plugins and main 
source are distributed as two separate tar.gz's originally, so as I'm trying
to make an ebuild I have to deal with those files. 

What is the build directory structure supposed to look like? Should I
unpack the plugins inside the main source tree? Then put mythburn-ui in
the plugins dir?

I've tried a few combinations of things like this without success so far.
Does the mythtv source have to actually be compiled before I can attempt
to compile mythburn-ui?

:) We're already talking about a new UI when no code has been officially
released for the old UI. Is there any code available for the new UI yet?

I just want to see some sort of mythburn working with 0.19. It's the last
piece of the puzzle to get a fully functional 0.19 now that most of the
LiveTV issues have been resolved in 0.19-fixes.
