I think probably not, it really depends on the age of the kernel and I
don't even remember what the beta version of Mythdora used as a
kernel, but quite certainly not 2.6.21. Most probably there are no
kmdls anymore for the kernel used there (kmdls get removed once the
kernel gets removed from updates-released, as they are of no use and
yum gets confused by their presence).
OTOH the nice thing about the video4linux-kmdls is that they should
work as good and as bad on any platform they build on. So in theory
you *should get similar results as Marcel.

It would be better to test on something newer like the latest FC6/F7
kernels. As said you won't be able to find matching kmdls anyway on an
FC6 kernel that doesn't exist on Fedora's repos anymore.
