I'm not afraid of compiling myself or running trunk. If you read my
post, you'll see that I already am. The problem is finding the time to
reformat and reinstall my AppleTV box. I can't seem to get trunk going
under mythbuntu, so I need to install ubuntu from scratch to do it.
This is a huge time investment that I can't make right now. So in
response to "don't be a wimp", I say, "Don't be such an ass."
