Page on "Installing MythTV on Debian" is missing a critical step

Description

On the Wiki manual page at:

https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Installing_MythTV_on_Debian

There is some sort of missing step between "Choose Your Package" and "Install Software".

The step to Install Software assume the packages are in a place where apt-get can find them, but instead they are located in the build directory. How do you install the .deb files? Using dpkg -i requires a lot of dependencies to be resolved by hand.

The following text should be added to the instructions:

replace sudo apt-get install packagename

with sudo dpkg-scanpackages -m . | gzip -c > Packages.gz sudo echo "deb [trusted=yes] file:///full/path/to/build/packaging/deb ./" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mythtv.list sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install packagename

Let me try again:

replace:

sudo apt-get install packagename

with

sudo dpkg-scanpackages -m . | gzip -c > Packages.gz
sudo echo "deb [trusted=yes] file:///full/path/to/build/packaging/deb ./" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mythtv.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install packagename
