[mythtv-users] Differences between main 0.20 tarball and Mythtvology setup

I've downloaded and built the 0.20.2 tarball and I'm almost ready to 
install (after I make a backup of my current setup). However, I just 
looked at the install targets in the Makefiles, and I'm wondering if I 
need to take some extra steps. I set up my system with 0.18, using the 
Mythtvology guide and Axel's rpm's. Looking at the Makefiles, there are 
significant differences between the main Mythtv layout as installed by 
the Makefiles and that installed by the rpm packages. For example, the 
Makefile installs the 0.20 libs in /usr/local/lib and the programs in 
/usr/local/bin, while the packages I installed put the 0.18 version of 
libs and programs in /usr/lib and /usr/bin, respectively.

Should I go through by hand and delete the all 0.18 stuff? If I don't, 
and don't set up paths or other env variables right, could I accidently 
pull in 0.18 stuff? I'm not so much concerned about wasting space, but 
about pulling in the wrong thing if I have both 0.18 and 0.20 versions. 
I suppose I could also try to uninstall the stuff with Synaptic instead 
of by hand. My package files are WAY out of date, but that probably 
doesn't matter if I just want to uninstall.

Also, I assume I need to get rid of my chron job that dl'ed schedules 
from Zap2It, and create a new one for SchedulesDirect, yes? Is there 
anything else I need to clean out of my system from my 0.18 setup before 
I install 0.20.2?
