I've installed the softsqueeze with jre rpm from the Slimserver web
site on my FC3 box. It sort of works (the display is wrong but it's
useable), but I do have 1 showstopper issue which I think there MUST
be an easy answer for - I can't find any way of exiting Softsqueeze.
This link doesn't list an exit key -
http://softsqueeze.sourceforge.net/faq.html#shortcuts - but there MUST
be one, surely! At the moment I have to open an xterm, find the
process ID and kill it in order to get back to the MythTV menu.
