I have a full set of all components needed for Fedora Core 4/PowerPC sitting in wait at http://people.atrpms.net/~jwilson/fc4-ppc/ (along with a ton of other stuff). No metadata for automated installs yet, but if anyone wants to play with MythTV on FC4/PPC, please feel free to have at it...

They're there now, though I think a few lib packages (not needed for Myth) have some screwed up deps, due to build system issues, and most kmdl packages are missing or incomplete. But if you want to install MythTV on a PowerPC Fedora Core 4 system, here's the yum repo file to use:

name=ATrpms for Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch

Then simply "yum install mythtv-suite", just like on x86/x86_64. :)

No gpg sig to check. These will (hopefully) all get re-rolled in the future as official ATrpms packages, but for now, they're available for the adventurous to play with... (oh yeah, they're 0.18.1-based packages, with a number of gcc4/ppc fixes applied on top of them).
