Further to the above conversation, I've just installed a version of 2009.1 to 
check out some problems I've been having with other peripherals (not myth-based).

I wanted to run the package version of mythfrontend supplied with the distro, in 
order to try to connect to my existing back end, but have fallen down the 
QT3/QT4 hole. I'm using the Gnome desktop, not KDE, but obviously the system 
still loads QT4.

Most of my systems currently run 2008.1, with the Mandriva packages, so I didn't 
want to run a svn version that's too far ahead of my existing myth setup.

Any suggestions?
