opensuse MythTV latest (trunk) RPMs – as SPEC file

Whats new?

  • First the MythDVD plug-in was removed and merged with MythVideo. That makes one less RPM to keep track of.
  • MythZoneminder is a new plug-in that enables MythTV to use the capabilities of ZoneMinder, a Closed-circuit television (CCTV) application.


The most current SPEC file can be found here. You can define within the file what plugins you want to build. MythWeb is not working as a plugin jet, so you need to copy it manualy to /srv/www/htdocs on your machine.

To use the SPEC copy it to /usr/src/packages/SPECS/

Then run: "rpmbuild –bb /usr/src/packages/SPECS/mythtv-updates-trunk.spec > /var/log/buildmyth.log 2>&1"

After that you can follow the output of the building process by typing: "tail -f /var/log/buildmyth.log -n 100"

If you are missing dependencies download them from guru or packman.

I run MythTV on opensuse. As I do like to check out how the new development with MythTV is going ahead I have scripted together a SPEC file from other suse RPMs that downloads the latest SVN version and compiles it into my custom RPMs. Today I finally got it to work with the 12490 revision. I have uploaded the SPEC file.
