[mythtv-users] Mythbuntu with TuxOnIce HowTo?

     Currently have Mythbuntu 9.04 running on BE and FE, but due to
Comcast's "improvements", I need to get an IguanaWorks IR blaster
working and upgrade to the latest Mythbuntu/MythTV to support
controlling a STB and 3 DTAs.  I have had TuxOnIce (well, really it
was the previous generation, Suspend2) running with previous
incarnations (MythDora and FC6 builds based on Jarrod Wilson's guide),
but had been stumped trying to get it going on Mythbuntu 9.04 so I had
it backburnered.

     I'm trying to keep the old setup limping along and build the
replacement O/S in parallel on another disk (swapping the two,
building more, swapping back for scheduled recordings and viewing,
swapping back, etc, etc.).

     Has anyone got advice on how to go about getting a new install
of Mythbuntu 10.04 and TuxOnIce playing nice together?  Couldn't
figure out how to get beyond adding the TuxOnIce PPA to Synaptic in
the past -- couldn't find appropriate package(s) to install to get
TuxOnIce running.

     Once I get past that, I can dump the MythTV DB from the 9.04 system,
restore to the 10.04 disk and be up and running, hopefully.
