Yes! Pure unadulterated misunderstanding. I have never used 
yum-builddep. Thought you were referring to the actual myth packages. 
you head-faked me with the 'one-line' reference. I mistook that as 
referring to the installation of the mythtv packages.

So yes, yum-builddep does make the script redundant. Guess I won't 
bother to do a F12 update!


         Please let me know if anything I say offends you.
          I may wish to offend you again in the future.
