Hey Everyone,

I have seen the info on installing MythTV on Gentoo and we primarily run
Gentoo in our production environment so I am comfortable with it, but....

Having been working with Asterisk on Gentoo for some time now I know that
using the Gentoo method with software that changes quickly and whose
plugins and addons require manual configs, patches and makes sometimes
it may be easier to do everything from scratch instead of using emerge.

I guess I was wondering what you Gentoo folks thought about this. Did
you use  emerge to do the job, did you have trouble later patching and
compiling addons or other programs to make MythTV the best it could..?

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
