I did options 1 and 2 already as you suggested. I don't see any myth
files under /usr/bin or /usr/lib, but I do have myth files under
/usr/local/bin since this is where I told the make install to go (via
--prefix=/usr/local). I still get those errors. Also, my ld.so.conf
has /usr/local/lib as the last line (as per suggestion 2 above). As for
permissions, I compiled and installed as root, so the files under
/usr/local/bin are owned by root. Should these be owned by the mythtv
user and group?
