Go into your yum config and enable the testing repo. Your config
settings can potentially be in 2 places.
Here are the config settings for atrpms-testing:
name=Fedora Core 4 - i386 - ATrpms testing
To get this working, first, check your /etc/yum.conf file, here you will
either see the config settings above or you will see nothing of the
sorts, except for a reference to yum.repos.d. If the latter is true,
then you will need to pop open /etc/yum.repos.d/atrpms.repo and either
add the above config to it OR if you already have the settings, simply
change your "enabled" setting to 1, as shown above. Once that's done,
you should be able to update with yum and it should grab atrpms-testing.
It would be a good idea to run a "yum search mythtv | grep 19" (minus
the "'s) after you make the changes just to make sure you can see the
.19 packages before you try to cold-update.
To locate these config files, a command you may find helpful is "find /
-name yum.conf" (again, without the quotation marks).
Hope this helps and don't forget to backup your db before the upgrade
and read the couple of messages that others have posted already, just in
case you experience issues. Also keep in mind that running any app out
of the "testing" section (heck, even a few out of the stable section) is
dangerous and you should be aware. If you're not very experienced with
Linux or Myth I would hang tight until Axel puts .19 in stable. That's
just my $0.02.
