Now I know wha it didn't start - one needs to build DirectFB as 
multi-core-app. Now, when mythfrontend is running, any other DirectFB 
app (and Watching TV or a recording) gets stuck at

(*) DirectFB/Core: Multi Application Core. (2008-09-02 19:20)
(*) Fusion/Init: Builtin Implementation is still experimental!
Crash/Deadlocks might occur!
(*) Fusion/SHM: Using MADV_REMOVE ( >=
(*) Direct/Thread: Started 'Fusion Dispatch' (5085) [MESSAGING

So, it seems that QTe isn't using that fusion thing. Maybe this is a 
configuration error of QTe - maybe somebody of you know more about that. 
my config switch looks like:
./configure -qt-sql-mysql -qt3support -webkit -assistant-webkit

Any ideas?
