> Yes, but you are better off going with Fedora 8 (or CentOS).
I would second the CentOS suggestion. I abandoned the Fedora line
shortly after Fedora Core 5 became EOLed. I was tired of trying to keep
up with 6 month Fedora release cycle. RHEL/CentOS is on a longer 2+
I am using CentOS 5 with my MythTV using Wilson's tutorial. The only
changes you will need to make are:
1. Use the RHEL 5 ATrpms "stable" repository. (RHEL 5 and CentOS 5 are
binary compatible) You will also want to enable the "testing" repository
temporarily as there are 3 or 4 updated packages you will need from
there to get it to work. (You can just manually download those 4
packages if you don't want to enable the whole "testing" repository).
2. Use the FreshRPMs FC6 repository (Since FC6 is what feeds RHEL 5 it
should be generally compatible for what you'll need for MythTV). This
will require a minor change to the freshrpms.repo file, as the $version
variable will resolve to 5, so simply replace it with a solid 6 instead.
