I had to draw on many sources including: Duncan's how-to (link currently dead); the contrib wiki; (and it's wiki); knoppmythwiki.org; and many more that I have forgotten. (Thanks to Christian for this How To) Please add your success/failure stories at the end of this How To.
see dag repository You will likely need the following (based on Duncan's How to).
I know some are needed but have not confirmed if all are needed.
If you did not install all of the packages earlier in this How-to then the easiest way to retrieve this is by issuing this command: This should normally install the file that holds the database layout in /usr/share/doc/mythtv-docs-$version/database/ To load the database into My SQL import the dump file into My SQL, for the 0.20.2 version this would read: If you have no error then quit.
If you do then it is likely a permission or grant error to be resolved.
This is also documented in this How-to under "Configured as a Slave Backend".
Also note that for the ivtv modules, that they do depend on the kernel version.
You need to activate the ATrpms reposity before installing this contrib.
see ATrpms repository You need to activate the Dag reposity before installing this contrib.
Also note that your front end will need to match (for Knoppmyth 0.20.2 is in R5F27.
For SME8 and later you can drop the -0.20.2 suffix.
If you are in a hurry, you will need to update your kernel to a matching version.
