I have both on my system - 0.18.1 for the g/f (stable, no change to
behaviour) and latest SVN for when she's out and I can try out the bleeding
I installed one to prefix=/usr/local/mythSVN and the other to
prefix=/usr/local/mythSTABLE. I then have a script that removes and
recreates symlinks to /usr/local/myth as required - this way I don't have to
change the PATH for the mythytv user. I do have to re-run ldconfig after the
symlinks are set up to make sure the libraries are referenced OK.
Yes, two databases are required.
