Talk:Installing MythTV on RHEL/CentOS
p41, please don't rewrite this page completely. There is not need to duplicate the entire install process when its nearly identical to fedora. I wrote this page to point out the differences between Fedora and Cent/EL. ~mitchell2345
Perhaps the repository has changed the naming conventions, the closest I could find was
Can someone please clarify?

After installing MythTV 0.22 on a new CentOS 5.4 build, I came across a few issues that were not covered in either this CentOS page nor the Fedora page:
- Lirc installed via yum would not work for my MCE Remote.
- After building Lirc manually, it would not work in MythTV until I changed the LircSocket setting from /var/run/lirc/lircd to /dev/lircd (within the frontend settings).
- The sound could not be adjusted until I changed the mixer device within the frontend settings.
These may sound like generic problems, but I used this same hardware for my Fedora 6 / MythTV 0.21 installation, without getting these issues, making me think it is a CentOS thing (I could be wrong).
Should these tips go in here?
RHEL 6.0 Beta 2
MythTV 0.24 running with firewire support and LIRC Required the download of FC12 source packages and a recompile for many MANY packages, If anyone wants a package list I can try.. Havent got Miro working yet, expect the EPEL guys to get around to that eventually
Mythweb and many other issues resolved bt moving to 0.23-fixes Firewire stable with 2 firewire cards, one for the DCT6200 in broadcast and one for the DCT3200 in peer mode Miro 2.5.2 is now working on RHEL6b2, waiting for 3.0.3 to hit EPEL
