This really may not be complete. I'm doing this mostly off the top of
my head and this is my experience with mythburn CVS installing on
Fedora Core 3 as of about 3 weeks ago.
This is the howto I loosely followed when installing.
1) ProjectX .82 ( You may be able to use .90 but youll have to muck
around with the mythburn scripts.
For projectx, I made a shell script called /usr/local/bin/projectx
containing the following:
java -jar /usr/local/bin/projectx_dir/ProjectX.jar $@
The projectx_dir above is just a directory where I untarred projectx .82 into.
I followed the instructions on pulling down the latest from CVS, but
instead of mkdir /myth/mythburn, I just did mkdir /myth because I had
trouble with the install script looking for files it couldnt find.
Thats all I remember now.
