Other Installations:

For Debian (DEB file):

tar xzf xdtv-x.y.z.tar.gz
cd xdtv-x.y.z
fakeroot ./debian/rules binary
cd ..
dpkg -i xdtv_x.y.z_i386.deb

A Debian repository could also be used:
You just have to add these four following lines into your source.list file:
deb http://xawdecode.sourceforge.net/debian/ binary/ 
deb-src http://xawdecode.sourceforge.net/debian/ source/
deb ftp://ftp.las.ic.unicamp.br/pub/debian-marillat unstable main
deb-src http://perso.wanadoo.fr/debian/ unstable main

For Mandrake, Redhat, Suse dustributions (RPM file):

- become root
# rpm -ivh xdtv-x.y.z-i586.rpm
- if your system complains about missing libraries (libXv.so, LibXxf86dga.so, libXxpf6vm.so...) download XvBogus.spec . Then create the rpm binary: rpm -bb XvBogus.spec
and install it: rpm -ivh /usr/src/RPM/RPMS/i686/XvBogus-0.1-2.i686.rpm.
Retry to install xdtv-x.y-1.i686.rpm.

- from here now, you don't need to be root anymore.

- Please go to your home directory now

# mkdir ~/.xdtv

- copy the file /usr/doc/xdtv-x.y.z/xdtvrc.sample into your ~/.xdtv directory as xdtvrc

- you're done. Enjoy.

Create the binary RPM from source RPM

- become root

# rpm --rebuild xdtv-x.y-1.src.rpm

- if you're lucky you'll find the binary RPM in /usr/src/RPM/RPMS/i386 (or i586, or i686... this is system dependent)

- just install it as described above


Create the binary and source RPMs from source tarball

- become root

#rpm -ta xdtv-x.y.tar.gz

- if you're lucky you'll find the binary RPM in /usr/src/RPM/RPMS/i386 (or i586, or i686... this is system dependent) and the source RPM in /usr/src/RPM/SRPMS

- just install the binary RPM as described above

For all distributions:

- As a normal user:
# tar zxvf xdtv-x.y.z.tar.gz

# cd xdtv-x.y.z

# ./configure

# make

- As root, from xdtv-x.y.z directory:

# make install

- from here now, you don't need to be root anymore.

- Please go to your home directory now

# mkdir ~/.xdtv
