Description

ive tryed building mythtv outside the source directory(so several systems with incompabitle gcc's can share the source and all get updated together)

basicaly the source is at $x/src/mythtv/ and the build dir for my ubuntu 7.04 is $x/7.04/ $x is a nfs share for mythtv's videos so all systems see it allready when i run ../../src/mythtv/configure in $x/7.04/ is runs 'normaly' after i 'mkdir -p libs/libmyth' but has an error related to mythtv.pro Error processing project file: /media/mainlv/buildmyth/7.04/mythtv.pro

copying it from the build dir got that fixed but lead to more complex errors would be usefull if it worked without as much hacking

Hi Michael. I suspect the best way of doing this would be to use a union filesystem mount, but that is probably incompatible with NFS?
Anyway, this enhancement has no source code (i.e. a patch), so it will be rejected for now. Feel free to re-open it when you have some way to actually do this (e.g. a shell script to set it up, some .pro or makefile hacks, et c.)
Note that #1295 contains some changes to what you want.
