Depending on where you installed the source to,
you probably have binaries sitting in /usr/local/bin for all ivtv binary
apps. You probably have modules sitting in /lib/modules/2.6.17*.
Just as a personal pet peeve -
If you ever do an installation from source that would normally use make
install, use checkinstall instead. Checkinstall notates everywhere that a
make file spits binaries across your system, and records this in the local
apt installed database list. Basically, instead of
sudo make install
If you look in synaptic package manager, you will see the package you just
installed listed there and very easily uninstallable. Also, if you ever do
a checkinstall for an app that is already on the system, be sure to remove
the packages for that app already there. A good example is gaim. When gaim
2.0 beta 4 got released, people posted checkinstall'd debs. If you didn't
remove gaim, gaim-data and any plugins - things got very messy for lots of
Hope that helps, and you help to alleviate this pet peeve :)
