#2642 closed patch (wontfix)

Error in mythtv-HOWTO-5 section 5.4 for single CPU machines.

Was trying to build on a AMD64, needed the Makefiles in the lower subdir to pickup the "/usr/lib64/qt-3.3" rather then the default "/usr/lib/qt-3.3" path. Need the "make qmake".

On a single CPU machine, you would type the following to compile MythTV:

    $ qmake
    $ make qmake  <<------------------ add
    $ make

If you want to build MythTV on a multi-CPU machine (or with distcc), specify "-j numjobs". In the following example, we will have two concurrent jobs executing. Do not set the number of jobs too high, or your compile will actually take longer to complete than it would if you did a "normal" build.

    $ qmake
    $ make qmake
    $ make -j 2

"qmake" does the same thing as "make qmake", except it must be run after "qmake".

A single processor machine should also use "make -j2", except in the very rare case where you have less that 64 MB of RAM.

For your AMD64 compile problem you should ask about "/etc/" in the user list.
