I see what was happening with the dependencies. You've got kernel 
2163.nptl_32, the latest is now 2163.nptl_34, which I haven't got 
updated in my doc. You were likely running into another problem that I 
also had, where I could initially install the right kernel module for 
the _32 kernel, but adding the base ivtv package actually nuked it, for 
some reason (despite no warning). I've got saved debug output on that 
one if you'd like, Axel. ;-)

My money is on the bttv package causing the problem.
