Why not use the KnoppMyth forum? This is after all the MythTV mailing list.

Firefox yes, GNOME no.

apt-get -f install

Why may that assumption? Simply put, KnoppMyth makes installing Linux
and MythTV very easy. We don't make anything KnoppMyth specific. We
don't break anything so you cannot install what you want. If it works
w/ Linux, it should work with KnoppMyth. Keep in mind, KnoppMyth is
meant to be used as on a set-top box. While I'm like GNOME (and you
should be able to install the Debian way), it makes no sense on a PVR.
