The packages are there, they're just in either bleeding or testing. What all 
you need to do to get them installed has changed a bit over the last two 
weeks, and I haven't had a chance to put together another update. Some issues 
w/trying to merge the ivtv msp3400 and bttv msp3400 are still being shaken 
down on the ivtv list, but eventually, we'll hopefully have just a 
kernel-module-ivtv and kernel-module-video4linux rpm to install out of 
stable, and be happy, but we're not quite there yet...

If you temporarily enable bleeding, apt-get update apt-get install 
kernel-module-ivtv-2.6.8-1.521 kernel-module-video4linux-2.6.8-1.521, you 
*should* be okay, but might have to manually switch from using the v4l 
msp3400 to the msp3400-ivtv included w/the ivtv kernel module. The merged v4l 
version works for some people, and not for others...
