Good day everyone,

I've decided to use VDR 1.7.0 on my linux box, together with my 
Technotrend S2-3200 DVB-S2 card. Now, it's quite hard to find a decent 
tutorial on how to compile VDR from source, but at least I found this in 
the wiki:

http://www.vdr-wiki.de/wiki/index.php/OpenSUSE_VDR_DVB-S2_-_xine

It's german, and I don't completely understand it, but I wrestled 
through it. Right up to the point where I need to compile the plugins!

    ...
    skincurses.c: In member function ‘virtual bool
    cPluginSkinCurses::Initialize()’:
    skincurses.c:793: error: ‘WINDOW’ was not declared in this scope
    skincurses.c:793: error: ‘w’ was not declared in this scope
    skincurses.c:793: error: ‘initscr’ was not declared in this scope
    make[1]: *** [skincurses.o] Error 1
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/src/vdr/PLUGINS/src/skincurses'
    ...
    make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/local/src/vdr/PLUGINS/src/svdrpdemo'
    make[1]: Nothing to be done for `all'.
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/src/vdr/PLUGINS/src/svdrpdemo'

    *** failed plugins: skincurses

    make: *** [plugins] Error 1

What could be causing this and how can I fix it?

I'm using LinuxMCE 0710 - Kernel 2.6.22-14-generic

Thank you for your patience,

Jelle De Loecker
