I'm not familiar with current releases of Mandriva (it was still  
Mandrake last time I played with it) but I can give you some general  

Compiling MythTV from scratch is probably not the best thing for a  
Linux novice to attempt. If you are bound and determined to do it I  
would suggest using a distribution that is more commonly used, such  
as Fedora, which would allow you to use Jarod's excellent step-by- 
step guide.

But an even better solution would be to use one of the "all-in-one"  
MythTV distributions such as MythDora or KnoppMyth, which basically  
install the OS as well as Myth with a guided procedure.

Dennis Hand had post a little while ago which indicated a new  
MythDora release will be out soon using MythTV 0.20.

So unless there is some particular reason that you need to have  
Mandriva installed on your Myth box I'd suggest another approach,  
otherwise we are all very likely to be seeing a *lot* of further  
posts from you here :-))
