Thanks for helping to test Bill.
I just tried MythDVD. It works fine here. Might it be the command line
you have setup in it?
I will have to look a the xmame dependency problem. I did not try to
install it (xmame) as I have not experience using it. Now that I know
there are problems I'll see what I can do.
I noticed the grainy fonts as well. I am not sure if it is using the TT
versions. I suspect xfs may not be setup to by default.
