I don't know about Ubuntu, but on Fedora these are the notes I made
('#' means as root)

# yum remove xmltv

(to remove the packaged xmltv)

then, to install it from cvs source:

$ cvs -d:pserver:anonymous at xmltv.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/xmltv login

(when it asks for the password just press enter)

$ cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous at xmltv.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/xmltv
co -P xmltv

(this will create a directory 'xmltv' in the current location)

or to upgrade

$ cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous at xmltv.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/xmltv
up -P xmltv


change to the xmltv directory and

$ perl Makefile.PL

$ make

# make install

obviously you do this at your own risk, but it worked for me :-)
