This is an FYI.
I've had previous versions of mythfrontend working great on a g3 ibook 500mhz. Right now, it looks like the devs are looking at the issues with trying to get 0-22-fixes to build on it.
In terms of the laptop itself, the hardware acceleration does most of the work, so it's a very pleasurable frontend for SD over wireless ethernet. Keep in mind, anything we keep is transcoded into SD anyway to make it a pleasure to watch recordings over wireless 'G' ethernet.
1. Must run Linux. I use Debian stable with a KDE 3.x desktop. It's a great desktop experience. Ubuntu PPC is many times buggier.
2. Tweak PCI latency. This meaningfully enhances the multimedia performance of the computer. http://www.sabi.co.uk/Notes/linuxSoundLatency.html
3. No encryption on the wireless access point. Turn encryption off and use a MAC access control list.
