[mythtv-users] FC1 problem at install mythtv Step

I ran into the same problem 2 days ago when I tried to upgrade my myth box.  
If you try to install mythdvd you get an error about transcode, if you 
install transcode you get more errors...  I'm not real proficient at fixing 
problems and ended up starting from scratch with FC3 and just finished 
installing myth suit with no problems.

Not a real helpful solution, but it works  :)

I wish I could say you are correct about ignoring the
warning.  Unfortunately, I get an error when I try to
apt-get mythtv suite.  Any thoughts?  See below for
the error I get.
