MythTV is digital video recording software, allowing
watching/recording of things through a tv tuner card, and even
pause/resume of a 'live stream'.
It's heavily dependent on mysql, as I recall, and has the option to
use Apache+PHP to serve up a web based interface, MythWeb, as is
mentioned in the OPs reply to your question. It, however, doesn't use
php's ability to interface with berkley db in any way I'm aware of, so
it should safe to merely rebuild php without the berkdb use flag, then
remove the db package.

used to provide dynamic web content, and as MythWeb is written in
