Positive. As I said, mythtv was installed from packages first thing on a
new install. I hadn't even been through tasksel yet, so it certainly can
happen if you install everything from packages. :)

And yes, CVS fixed my problem. I now have setup running, and have
everything configured. mythbackend starts up like it should, but I still don't
have a mythtv frontend working. It's not an issue with mythtv though. It's due
to the POS onboard sound card I have.
Thanks for all the help.
P.S. If anyone knows why a via8233 would do nothing but loop the first
second or so of a sound sample until you kill the playing process, feel free to
let me know off list (or on list if it's appropriate). I have already worked
through IRQ conflict issues, and tried alsa (which made things think they had a
/dev/dsp, but no sound played and the applications hung until I killed them
(and yes I checked the mixer)), but to no avail. -- Thanks again :)
