This is related to this:

MythTV doesnt compile on Ubuntu 8.10 right now.

A little background explanation on how the build system works.

By default the build system for trunk compiles for Ubuntu 8.10
(Intrepid), 9.04 (Jaunty) and 9.10 (Karmic) for both AMD64 and i386
Packages are compiled every day unless there has been no change in the
SVN repository since the last build, with one exception: if mythtv has
been updated, then the mythplugins are automatically recompiled to
catter for any API changes.

Once all packages are compiled, the system check if the packages were
actually built for all platforms ; if not they are all discarded and I
get an email with the error.

It's all automated.

As mythtv doesn't build on ubuntu intreprid, all packages were
discarded, normally mythplugins shouldn't have built, but for some
reasons they did (I'm puzzled why though, just checked the code and
it's fine).

i did get the email on the 7th, but thought it was just a temporary
error until I saw it again yesterday.

As a temporary fix, I've removed Ubuntu Intreprid from the target
list, so it's now built only for Jaunty and Karmic.

Remember, that this is TRUNK.. It's build daily automatically...
So the status on how well it works isn't guaranteed to say the least...

If you don't want to worry about that kind of stuff, run fixes (release).

Still, I fixed the issue after less than 36 hours ... That's better
tech support than you would get from most software supplier :)
And it's free
