I am trying to get Freeguide version 0.11 to work on Mandriva running

uname -a

Linux duelie #1 SMP Tue Apr 27 20:37:44 EDT 2010 x86_64 AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5200+ GNU/Linux


The program launches. I have checked the Java version, I have java version "1.6.0_18" installed.

I ran the First time wizard. At the end it tries to download the TV listings. It fails with a PATH error.


The exact testx is :

Unable to find XMLTV tools in your path. Please ensure XMLTV tools are installed.


They are, I installed them though urpmi.

ll /usr/share/xmltv/

total 24

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 22560 2009-03-19 07:08 xmltv.dtd


The current value for $PATH -

echo $PATH


I did some searching around, I am uncertain how to modify the value of $PATH. I did add a symlink to /usr/shave/xmltv but that did not fix it.


It has been a long time since I had a PATH problem. Can someone guide me to a howto that works? The ones I found confused me more than helped.

I did, this is the grabber package.




I'm in Canada, there is no Canadian package, so the only option is the .na package.


This generates the above errors every time.

The problem seems to be with the free na grabber.  When I select Canada (free alternative - na_dtv) I get the same error as you do.  Selecting Canada (shedulesdirect.org - costs money) it works up to a point where I am asked for a username.

Upon further investigation it seems the free grabber for Canada is currently broken. See here: http://www.xmltv.se/validator/nightly/





BTW: The latest version of Freeguide from the repositories is 0.10.12
