Don, it'll take a while -- I looked at the drivers and the 2.6 kernel
drivers are built for FedoraCore2 (32-bit version), so we're going to
start out with that, and then experiment in a Debian pure 64 chroot.
Gentoo people have the driver working for amd64, so I don't think there
are any real problems. (I need someone else to handle the project, so
I'm recommending an optimal entry point.)
Dave, I would be very interested to hear any info you have
found about HDTV cards that work (or not) under amd64.

MythTV compiles on amd64 using the following procedure:
* get liblame0 and liblame0-dev from
* add this to /etc/apt/sources.list and run update:
deb-src http://dijkstra.csh.rit.edu/~mdz/debian unstable mythtv
* wajig source mythtv
* cd mythtv-0.16
* vi debian/control -- add this to dependencies, after liblame-dev:
* apt-get install libqt3-mt-dev libmysqlclient-dev liblircclient-dev
libartsc0-dev (this will also install mysql-common)
* fakeroot dpkg-buildpackage
I'm doing this just to test the build, to help me decide whether to
advice somone else to buy and amd64 for a capture project, so I've not
installed it. I've already tested that a bttv capture card works.
The second decision is the pcHDTV capture card, which seems to be
getting mixed reviews under amd64.
