[mythtv] Direct FB SVN 7196

Ok, 7153 compiles cleanly and displays the first menu ok, with the
fusion drivers loaded I can watch live TV and play recorded shows,
however once myth starts watching tv/recorded it seems that keyboard
input is ignored as I can't exit or pull up the EPG or menu.

As a quick tester I tried using myths native lirc support to control but
all input seems to be ignored.

Running an strace on mythfrontend -qws shows activity when remote
buttons are pressed but myth doesn't seem to respond.

Also I can't seem to run gdb against mythfrontend -qws as it complains
about the -qws bit.

Almost there! Any ideas on the input problem?

Hi folks, loving myth working beautifully with two nova-t dvb cards.
Thought I'd try and address the interlacing problems of X by using
directfb with a matrox G450 but whilst I can get it to compile against
qte 3.3.4 I get the following message when I try and run mythfrontend

mythfrontend: symbol lookup error: mythfrontend: undefined symbol:

./configure  --enable-multi  --with-gfxdrivers=matrox

Myth config

./configure --enable-directfb --disable-x11 --disable-xv --disable-xvmc

Any Clues?

Thanks Dave.

P.S. I had to exclude mythuitest from the compile as it complains about
