hello everyone. i've not had any replies and i could really
use some help. i've read through the documentation to no
avail. someone must know something about this problem,
or am i the only one? i'm looking for some help on how to
get over this "Illegal instruction" problem on mythbackend.
following is my original posting. thanks, daryl.

folks, i am running mythbackend version: 0.16.20040906-1
on an old pentium pro without sse. i installed it on a
debian sarge system from source using apt-get.

i suspect this might be due to the use of video interlacing
on this old pentium pro. however it is not checked in
the mythfrontend, and it happens as mythbackend is
starting up.  i am wondering if there  is a build configure
option to not use interlace, and how to enable it through
the apt interface.

i am including the output from mythbackend below,
in case it means anything...
