Hmmm. Think I’ll wait until *after* the upcoming meeting to finish fiddling with the mythbox. I did get it more-or-less up and running, but ran into problems again with XvMC. Enabling XvMC would crash not just mythfrontend, but X as well. I tried using an older, recommended Nvidia driver (7676) and that didn’t seem to help either. In fact, I wound up with an unworkable X which only came back to life once I reinstalled the newer drivers.

Fesk. So, I didn’t actually get around to recompiling the kernel – there didn’t seem to be much point. I think I might try Knoppmyth, or one of the other pre-built myth versions just to see if there’s a light at the end of the tunnel which *isn’t* a train.

In any case, all that will have to wait for a month or so now. Work’ll be a 13/7 occupation from now on…
