I'm compiling myth from source, currently it is using the VA-API stuff
for playback, but it sounds like I might need opengl support compiled
in too.

is that the 'radeon' driver in /etc/X11/xorg.conf?

I shall have a look at this later on... ta. :)

Basically I'm playing with netbooting stuff as I'm probably going to
get some ION based frontendnds at some future time, but I'd like to
make it support as much stuff as possible so if I can get the ATI
stuff in my desktop working then all the better.
