Upgrade time

The Little League World Series is about to start, followed quickly by the new television season, so it's time to upgrade MythTV. First step is the ivtv driver for the Hauppauge PVR-250/350 MPEG-2 encoder/tuner cards, from version 0.1.9 to 0.2.0-rc3k. That's gone fairly well, with only one small hiccup. /etc/X11/XFree86Config needed to be changed from:
    Driver      "fbdev"
    Option      "fbdev" "/dev/fb0"
    BusID "0x1:0x6:0x0"

    Driver      "ivtvdev"
    Option      "ivtvdev" "/dev/fb0"
    BusID "PCI:01:06:0"

to get the front-end working again.

I also had to add "alias tveeprom tveeprom-ivtv" to /etc/modules.conf.

There may be another San Diego team going to the Little League World Series this year. Rancho Buena Vista LL plays Tracy National, the northern California team, in the West Regional final tomorrow night. They beat Tracy in pool play, but it was the only game they won by less than the slaughter rule. (The term "mercy rule" is for pussies. :-P )

The Great Lakes Regional final is this evening. Limestone LL, from down in the Kanker Sore (Kankakee), plays the Kentucky team. They already lost to them 10-1 in pool play, so things don't look good. I still want to know what Great Lake borders Kentucky...
