Didn't show up the first time..
Thanks for the response. I think you may be on to something, since at
one point I did try compiling and installing ivtv from source.
As I understand it, compiled programs are generally in /usr/local/bin or
/usr/local/sbin, while RPMs are deposited in /usr/bin or /usr/sbin. I've
got a bunch of ivtv stuff in /usr/local/bin which would seem to indicate
that the compiled ivtv binaries are in use, yet when I run an apt-get
install ivtv it tells me I'm already at the latest version. I would
think that apt-get would only know about stuff it has "gotten". How did
you get the compiled version off your system cleanly and reinstall from
RPM using apt-get? Thanks again.
