Re: update broke mythtv - old tricks didnt work

my solution was to restore last weeks automatic backup of system (yay tar and cron!) and I am back in business. I went into synaptic package manager and locked all installed packages that came from Nov15 version of mythtv. we will see if running with a locked version keeps my mythtv out of trouble!
