Before starting to enhance libdvbpsi as you downloaded it from the git repository
at make sure you have autotools (autoconf, automake, m4, libtool)
Clone the repository:
git clone git://
In contrast to other autotools enabled programs libdvbpsi uses a script named
'bootstrap' to generate the configure script. Others use a program ''
for that. For libdvbpsi you need to run:
Run the configure script for development:
./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-debug --disable-release
Now you can start enhancing libdvbpsi.

Building packages
Further writing.
Once configure, run 'make dist', this will generate a libdvbpsi-${VERSION}.tar.gz
and libdvbpsi-${VERSION}.tar.bz2. If you intend to build a package for RPM based
linux distributions, then you can run 'rpmbuild -ta libdvbpsi-${VERSION}.tar.gz'
or 'rpmbuild -ta libdvbpsi-${VERSION}.tar.bz2'.
For distributions that use another package management system look at their documentation
on howto create a installable package for it.
