I saw MythTV packages hit Debian Stable (or maybe backports) a few days ago.
I have a Plextor TV402U as a tuner (never confirmed if it works).  I'm running 
kernel 2.6.11-k7 with a 950 MHz Duron and 512 MB Ram, Debian stable on my 
lightly used file server.

Is the kernel sufficient for this setup to work without having to patch the 
kernel?  I just want to get Myth working so I can get a feel for it and see 
how it works running on a file server.  One or two desktops currently ssh 
into the file server and remote forward X sessions across the lan, so the 
desktops really act as terminals right now.

Not interested or setup for TV-out, ok to view MythTV results on computer 
monitor for now.  Will this setup work, or am I forced to obtain a later 

If i must use a later kernel and I choose one of the latest 2.6.x kernels, can 
I use that without recompiling it?
