One thing that doesn't see to work for me is mytharchive. I tried to make a
DVD of a couple of NG shows.

It appears my stability problems are related to NFS. For some reason nfs
just hangs and after a while the backend just kind of hangs too.  This has
been happening primarily on the master backend which is a somewhat
underpowered P3 500Mhz.  I have changed fstab to use rw,soft,intr,tcp. See
man nfs and the section on soft / hard for more details.  I haven't been
running this change long enough to know if it will help.  In theory myth
should get an error and not get stuck like it has.


PS I hunted for nfs bugs in launchpad but didn't find any that seemed
I'll probably report one.
Some NFS links.
