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.
