First of all, the "savage" driver did not work in Dapper Drake, either. Gutsy 
Gibbon promises to fix that, but I have my doubts. Second, Unichrome chipsets 
do not use that driver. There are three free drivers for it to choose from: 
via, unichrome, and openchrome. For MythTV, openchrome is the one you want.
