I got my main mythtv install off debs at

deb ftp://ftp.nerim.net/debian-marillat/ unstable main
deb-src http://dijkstra.csh.rit.edu/~mdz/debian unstable mythtv

but apt-cache search couldn't find mythplugins there, so I just
downloaded the tarball off mythtv.org, built according to the
instructions in the FAQ, and copied the mythtv directories under
/usr/local to the corresponding locations under /usr and it worked
just fine.  (Well, worked just fine until I pressed 'M' in the
mythweather setup screen, at which point it segfaulted and now
continues to segfault on startup if I have any plugins other than
mythweather in /usr/lib/mythtv/plugins/, but that seems unlikely to
be a Debian-related issue.)

The freedoms that we enjoy presently are the most important victories of the
White Hats over the past several millennia, and it is vitally important that
we don't give them up now, only because we are frightened.
