[mythtv-users] Compile options for Atom/ION?

I have an Acer Revo using the Atom with ION graphics and have installed
Mandriva 2009.1 Powerpack which comes with the nVidia driver

I compiled Mythtv 0.21-fixes with:
./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-proc-opt --enable-opengl-vsync
--enable-opengl-video --enable-xvmc-opengl

and everything is fine. You don't need Atom-specific compilation but you
do want the nVidia proprietary driver and OpenGL. Don't forget to enable
the OpenGL in mythfrontend.
