Hi I was just wondering if it is possible to exit out of MythTV and get to the bash prompt?How? As of now, when I exit from MythTV the system just shuts down.

You could try ctrl+alt+backspace

best thing to do if you want a prompt, is to login over ssh

nevermind, I figured it out....BUT I have a new question. I'm trying to build and run a new kernel. I've downloaded it, compiled it, but I just don't know where to place the kernel to get it to boot. I've tried putting the new vmlinuz in /boot but it doesn't work. Where is the kernel stored in MCE?

I have tried the CTRL-ALT-Backspace but it doesnt work on my MythTV console. Is there any other way that i can configure the MythTV to launch a bash prompt?
