The other side of the Lostcoast

Gentoo Use Flags for MythTV

Well after much mucking around I think I have finally got MythTV and Gentoo Linux working as required. I have had to install a fair bit of extra stuff to do the things I want but it was worth it. I now know a lot more about Linux and Gentoo.

Well just so other people can save time, here is my Use flags for MythTV and Gentoo Linux:

USE="-directfb mjpeg 3dnow 3dnowext aac acpi alsa apache2 avi bzlib cdr crypt cscope divx4linux dts dvb dvd dvdr dvdread encode fftw flac gd gif gtk howl imlib ithreads jpeg joystick lirc live mad matroska mmx mmxext mpeg mysql mythtv ncurses net nvidia oggvorbis opengl pam png quicktime readline real sdl sse svga theora threads tiff transcode truetype usb v4l v4l2 win32codecs X x86 xanim xine-lib xinerama xmms xv xvid xvmc zlib"
