Ime working away from home for at least six months in a week and wanted
to archive stuff off the box before then so I think I am going to try to
install from source.  I guess I need to do everything, rather than just
the plugins or mytharchive.

My current packages are for .19.5, thing is should I do 

svn co http://svn.mythtv.org/svn/trunk/mythtv
svn co http://svn.mythtv.org/svn/trunk/mythplugins
svn co http://svn.mythtv.org/svn/trunk/myththemes

to get the sources or should I be getting a 'pathced' version, if so
what svn commands should I run?

I am building on Ubuntu Dapper with a deb-t card.  I found a howto at
http://www.phoenixus.co.uk/blog/category/ubuntu/ and was going to try
it.  There douse not seem to be a --enable-dvb-t for configure, just a
--dnable-dvb, is this OK?

Also once I have built I guess I simply need to use apt-get to remove
all the myth packages and make install them.  Should this work without
screwing up my configuration?
