Special Information

Mythbuntu is a media center operating system (OS).

It is based on Ubuntu and integrates the MythTV Media center software as its main function, and does not install with all of the programs included with Ubuntu.

Following the principles of KnoppMyth and Mythdora, Mythbuntu is designed to simplify the installation of MythTV on a home theater PC.

After Mythbuntu has been installed the MythTV setup program begins in which it can be configured as a frontend (a media viewer), backend (a media server), or combination of the two.

Mythbuntu aims to keep close ties with Ubuntu thus allowing changes to be moved upstream for the greater benefit of the Ubuntu Community.

Due to the close link with Ubuntu, easy conversions between desktop and standalone Mythbuntu installations are possible.

The development cycle of Mythbuntu closely follows that of Ubuntu, with releases occurring every six months.
