I am trying to install MythTV from:


I did the following:

Installation Add this line to /etc/apt/sources.list: 
deb http://dijkstra.csh.rit.edu:8088/~mdz/debian woody mythtv
 And then execute this command: 
# apt-get update && apt-get install mythtv 

After a couple of false starts I finally got to the following messages:

spud:/home/kent# apt-get install mythtv

dpkg: error processing mythtv (--configure):
 subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 255
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

Can any one give me a clue as to what I should do next?

I am running Debian 3.0 (2.4.18-bf2.4).

Thanks for any help you might give.
