It should be looking for videosource in the mythconverg database  
which means you don't have mythtv-database installed or it didn't  
configure correctly. I'm not near my machine but, assuming mythtv- 
database is installed, something like dpkg-reconfigure mythtv- 
database ought to help.

In general if you "apt-get install mythtv" it should do all the right  
things to put the binaries in place & create the DB & a mythtv user  
with correct permissions and so on.
