Perhaps you shouldn't have mucked around with the kernel
update, or reverted it. Think of yourself as a little Tivo corp
who has to decide when making a change to n+1 one boxes what sort
of things can go wrong. You need to determine if it is even
worthwhile to make the change and also have some strategy for
undoing it should it cause problems.

Not really. It lacks polish and automation in a couple of places
and is dependent on hardware that isn't as integrated into the main
kernel sources as you would normall suspect. However, it's not that bad
and it's not nearly the worst media app to deal with.
Something like Ubuntu should ease the pain considerably.
