It's in the main codebase now, if you follow the instructions on 
svn.mythtv.org to compile the source. There are quite a few dependencies 
though so you may need several rpms or equivalent. I'm a dunce when it comes 
to linux hackery but I managed it eventually :)

In summary, I ran the command as given on svn.mythtv.org to download mythtv 
and mythplugins from my /usr/src directory. SVN creates a directory of the 
same name for each. Go into mythtv/ and run 'sh configure --enable-dvb', then 
'qmake mythtv.pro', then 'make install'. I don't think it automatically 
installs the mythbackend service so you may have to copy over the 
provided /etc/rc.d/init.d/mythbackend script (mandriva again, sorry).

You'll probably get lots of errors due to missing dependencies but that's part 
of the fun... Well, I enjoy it anyway,
