[sorry, mistakenly sent last email unfinished.]
This isn't Mythtv-related, but has everything to do with my being a
Linux newbie...at least as far as fdisk, partitions, and LVM go. I
followed Jarod's HOWTO with success up till I try to run the mtyhbackend
and it fails due to...my /video mount is not present!
# /sbin/fdisk -l

None /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
/dev/hda3 swap swap defaults 0 0
For all my reading, I can't determine what is wrong i.e. what to fix.
The original Fedora install app provided me the opportunity to create a
"fourth" partition mounted to /video that would take the remaining
space. But although I can see /dev/hda5, I can't add an entry to
/etc/fstab that allows me to 'mount /video'. Also note that I did
reformat hda5 to XFS.
