I have Kubuntu on my laptop with an SVN frontend compiled which I use to 
watch TV upstairs over wireless while I'm working on other stuff on my 
main PC :)

Actually, Kubuntu standard installation already had many more of Myth's 
dependencies installed than Debian, but we can just scratch that up to 
the Kubuntu folks wanting to make *everything* work first go.

That's only if you want to compile 0.18 stable. Need to go the long way 
(though not much longer) to get latest sources.

For the benefit of the original poster:

   # apt-get install subversion
