[mythtv-users] Jarod's guide: Installing for the first time

I ended up having to update the kernel to the latest version
2.6.8-something), and then enable at-testing in the short sources.list file.
After that I was able to apt-get install medley-package-config and continue
with the installation. 

Note that you probably don't have to update the kernel at this point, but I
couldn't find nvidia drivers against the stock kernel so I updated to the
version Jarod metions in his guide. There are instructions on how to update
the kernel in the last section of the guide, or you can download the rpm
from the Fedora website and install it with 'rpm -Fvh <rpm name>'.

Just got everything up and running on FC2 following this guide. If you have
any more questions, post them here and I'll try to help.

I'm a total newbie and trying to install mythtv using Jarod's guide. I have
installed fedora FC2 and installed the ATrpms-kickstart as described. Also
update and dist-upgrade. I didn't get an error message. 
Then, my sources.list doesn't contain any of the fields that are said to be
#-out. And furthermore, I can't do the next: apt-get install kde...

I can see from Jarod's note that I need to do something (install
medley-package-config or add repos manually) but I have no clue what that

I have searched the different forums but can't really find anything.

Hope someone is able to help.
