I'm on Gentoo - config worked fine.

First Problem: The auto-detection of ProjectX. My ProjectX comes as a
jar that needs to be called from java. I'm sure I could have put
together a shell script that mimics the "projectx" executable the
script wants to see, but being a lazy guy, I just hard-coded the
correct command into the script...

DVD creation went well (escept for the flipped thumbnails, but I found
the flag for that), next snag I hit was my apache user not being
allowed to write DVDs. I'll fix that another  day - calling growisofs
manually to write out the DVD produced a fine looking result (except
for the thumbs, but that should be taken care of now).

As soon as I get the permissions issue sorted out, this will be my new
default way of burning DVDs from Myth. Thanks a lot for your effort!
