KnoppMyth – a Linux distribution built from the ground up whose form and function both revolve around MythTV as its primary architectural feature. A major focus of KM is to, “bring Mythtv to the masses.”

The initial releases of KnoppMyth were based on Knoppix, but the latest incarnations are not.
Knoppix itself is an adaptation of the Debian Linux distribution, KnoppMyth therefore is another project that has spiraled off into its own domain. Later release of KnoppMyth would be more correct to call it as a specialized and heavily customized Debian derivative, as there’s very little Knoppix left.

KnoppMyth can be installed and function on almost any “modern” computer. There are a set of components that constitute the so-called, “Knoppmyth Reference Platform” which is nothing more than a set of hardware that is known and certified to work out-of-the-box.

The latest version of KnoppMyth was released in July 2008.
After that, the distribution has been moved to Arch Linux as it base and renamed to LinHES.
