hey, thanks for the help.  cpu is an old one, info:

power management:

so i used the debian 'apt-get -b source mythtv-backend' to build the
debs for me and installed them.  i'm not sure how to specify things to
configure when doing that.  i can try to run configure manually but
i'm afraid if i run apt-get again, it'll do a make clean or some such.
 can someone tell me what i would need to specify and how to do that
with ubuntu/debian when creating debs?

thanks again,
