View Full Version : [kubuntu] problems running mythtv

August 3rd, 2008, 10:59 AM

I've managed to install mythtv and I typed the setup command:
sudo mythtv-setup

I entered the main menu and begin the configuration. When I'm trying to access the Capture cards menu it crashes with the following error:

After that I've tried to access mythtv with the following command:

so I received the following error (same as before):

I should mention that when I type sudo apt-get install, the system shows me that I should remove some packages, mythtv-backend beeing one of them :confused::
lavinia@lavy:~$ sudo apt-get install
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
libfame-0.9 libpvm3 libx264-57 mythtv-backend transcode
Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.

I use: Ubuntu 8.04, Kde 3.59

Any ideas?
