Baaaah, still can't get Freevo to run :(
i have spent many hours and still can't get Freevo to run.
i have all the dependancies. to get it installed, but i still get errors. maybe some one can help me. here is what i get:
[draldrich@localhost ~]$ freevo
Error: TV_RECORD_DIR not set
Please set TV_RECORD_DIR to the directory, where recordings should be stored
or remove the tv plugin. Autoset variable to /home/draldrich.
Error: VIDEO_SHOW_DATA_DIR not found
Error: can't find /tmp/TV.xml
Use xmltv to create this file or when you don't want to use the tv
module at all, add TV_CHANNELS =  and plugin.remove('tv') to your
local_conf.py. TVguide is deactivated now.
Can't find lsdvd. DVD support will be limited and maybe not
all discs are detected. Please install lsdvd, you can get it
After installing it, you should run 'freevo cache --rebuild'
