Hey James,

I've been running Myth on Gentoo for about 8 months and once I got it
working it has been stable and very useable (it has earned a very high

The setup is
Myth - 15.1
Epia m10000 running kernerl 2.4.24(I think) with epia patches
Hauppauge pvr 350
ivtv 0.9
via binary drivers for video and mpeg2 decoding
Alsa oss emulation
viaexp (Via's hacked up xine)

I've found Gentoo suits this kind of setup as dependencies sort
themselves out (If you get the USE settings correct), and Myth "Just
worked", whether the system is more optimal for begin compiled from the
ground up, I can't say, but I would recommend Gentoo, particularly if
you are familiar with it.
