I got around that part by setting up a local fc3t3 base os mirror and then I 
pull down rawhide packages to create an updates repo, all using yam. Handy 
little tool...

I'm assuming this is a compiler issue, yes? I did a complete rebuild of my 
pcHDTV box this weekend, which is now running something somewhere between FC2 
and FC3 (most notably, gcc 3.4 and xorg 6.8.1 from rawhide). I seem to have 
gained some performance w/HDTV playback from moving to a 2.6.9 kernel 
compiled with gcc 3.4 over my prior 2.6.7 kernel compiled with gcc 3.3, but 
while Myth does successfully build and the backend runs fine, the frontend 
bombs out every time (can't recall the exact error). Is this the same 
breakage you're referring to?

That's what I'm doing at the moment. There were some gcc 3.4-specific fixes 
just checked into CVS, so I'm planning on trying that in a little while...
