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.
