Ah, see, I use CentOS 5 (which uses 1.1.1)--and before that its cousin
Fedora 6--everywhere, whether for MythTV or my personal work
environment.[1] I figured out a long time ago that it would be wise to
get off the Fedora six-months development cycle. Unless some new
whiz-bang device appears that I absolutely need MythTV/driver support
for, I quite like not having to do more than 'yum update' until 2014.

[1] VMware VM, so portable across hardware. It normally runs on my
main MythTV storage array/slave backend, but if the latter goes down
could run on my frontend/main backend or (if I spend $20 for VMware
Fusion) even my MacBook.

Frontend/backend:	P4 3.0GHz, 1.5TB software RAID 5 array
Backend:		Quad-core Xeon 1.6GHz, 6.6TB sw RAID 6
Video inputs:		Four high-definition over FireWire/OTA
Accessories:		47" 1080p LCD, 5.1 digital, and MX-600
