I finally got around to upgrading my main myth box from FC4 to FC6 the
entire process really wasn't that bad.
I ended up performing a fresh install from DVD. A few minor hiccups, I
forgot to back up my crontabs and /usr/local/bin/MyBlaster.pl. Opps $)
I had to update my ~/.xinitrc and change references to
/usr/X11R6/bin/xset to /usr/bin/xset. Looking back, really, the longest
steps were waiting for `yum -y upgrade` and `yum -y install
mythtv-suite` once the DVD install was complete.
Thanks for the input,
