Summary

Knoppmyth (KM) is a distro of LINUX built from the ground up whose form and function both revolve around Mythtv as its primary architectural feature. A major focus of KM is to, "bring Mythtv to the masses." As a direct result of this vision, setup and configuration are highly automated and easy for users.

As its name implies, the initial releases of Knoppmyth were based on Knoppix, but the latest incarnations are not, although the brand-name "Knoppmyth" has been retained[1]. From the knoppmythwiki, "Knoppix itself is an adaptation of the Debian linux distribution, Knoppmyth therefore is another project that has spiraled off into its own domain. These days it would be more correct to call KnoppMyth a specialized and heavily customized Debian derivative, as there's very little Knoppix left."
