Ah well, I guess we can just roll with that for an FC2 guide release...
In quasi-related news:
I hit a brick road some time back trying to patch the pcHDTV driver into
ATrpms' kernels (mostly due to lack of time), but I may give it another go
with the recent stuff that Kelliher put out. If I'm successful, I'll get you
a patch. Then when nvidia and ivtv are 4kstacks clean, maybe there will still
be need for an ATrpms kernel for ease of pcHDTV use. :-)
