I have used FC1 (installed following Jarod's guide) with XFS and LVM
using atrpms and didn't have any problems. I forget the versions. It
was whatever was current at the time.

I have 4 IDE hard drives on a Promise controller (TX2 maybe?) in my
backend. They are LVM'd together and running XFS on top. I used FC2
and setup the LVM and XFS at install time.
If you use one of the recent ck ivtv patches it should work with 2.6
kernel. I use ck99e myself.
>Is anyone here using MythTV on a FC2 machine?
Yes, my backend is FC2 running a kernel.org 2.6.7 with a couple of
patches. My frontend is kernel.org 2.6.7 vanilla.

I have used Jarod's guide in the past without any problems, but my FC2
installations are from tarballs. Mostly because I do development on them.

Not that I can think of.
