[mythtv-users] MythTV On Gentoo - Thoughts and Questions

myth and gentoo work together beautifully :-)

The only problems I've run into are when I tried to install myth cvs
without emerging it - it copied the include files into
/usr/local/mythtv and it was messing up future installs once those
includes changed. Once I cleaned those out it was fine again.

Just using the standard ebuilds works great, as does the -cvs ebuilds
(after *slight* modification for a problem that may have just been
me). nuvexport works great, all the dependencies are also ebuilds I
believe. mythweb fits in with the gentoo webapp plan, however
convoluted it may be and works fine. Ivtv ebuild works fine as well.
