[mythtv-users] Intel mac mini linux, tv-out problems

I found out earlier tonight that openSuse10.2 is the only distro
currently shipping with Xorg-X11-7.2.
I'm downloading the DVD iso via BT right now and will be installing this
on my Mini tomorrow.
Look for updates.

Anyone else out there even thought of openSuse on the Mini?
I know I didn't!


PS...Yes, yes. I know. Boycott Suse. But this is more about testing
Xorg-X11-7.2 on the Mini than supporting some weird contract law thing
that I just don't grok. I fully intend on reloading FC6 as soon as
Xorg-X11-7.2 is available for it.
