well I've got a weird issue I'm hoping to get some help with...
only crops up with netboot (using the harddrive that was in the system
works fine), but VDPAU is having an issue initializing or something?
2009-12-04 17:30:07.827 VDPAU Error: Error at util-vdpau.cpp:222 (#1, Unknown)
2009-12-04 17:30:07.827 VidOutVDPAU Error: Failed to initialise VDPAU
2009-12-04 17:30:07.828 VideoOutput, Error: Not compiled with any
useable video output method.
2009-12-04 17:30:07.828 NVP(0), Error: Couldn't create VideoOutput
instance. Exiting..

both are using JYA's repo for the nvidia drivers and Myth, but the
netboot one isn't playing back.
