I would love to help if I could. I don't know C++ at all, but I'm pretty familiar with MythRecipe.
I just so happened to have downloaded all his current versions before he went down. I spoke
with him just before the site went down and he said he was finished with the 0.16 version
and was about to release it. The same with MythKaraoke. I'm not getting any return emails
either. So I guess thats that. He did say that version 0.15-2 would have no problem working
with 0.16. I can get version 0.15-2-src-20040704 to work but any version after that bombs. It
looks to me as if the .xml structure isn't getting created correctly after it downloads it's
information. As far as looking for instructions, there isn't any. And the database it's using is
MySQL with an option to use Postgres if you want but that won't work for Myth.
