Installing MythTV

I'm trying to install MtyhTV in Ubuntu 5.10 so I can use my plextor convertex box in Linux. I didn't find it in any of the repositories, so I downloaded the source and tried to compile it.

This is the output form ./configure:
# Basic Settings
Compile type     release
Compiler cache   no
DistCC           no
Install prefix   /usr/local
CPU              x86 (model name        : Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.80GHz)
Big Endian       no
MMX enabled      yes
Vector Builtins  no

# Input Support
Joystick menu    yes
lirc support     no
ivtv support     yes
FireWire support no
DVB support      no [/usr/src/linux-2.6.12-10-686/include]

# Sound Output Support
OSS support      yes
ALSA support     no
aRts support     no
JACK support     no

# Video Output Support
x11 support      no
xrandr support   no
xv support       no
XvMC support     no
XvMC VLD support no
OpenGL vsync     no
DirectFB         no
I don't see any errors, but no makefile is generated and there doesn't seem to be any video output support.

Has anybody used this program or hardware with Ubuntu?

Thanks for the reply. I managed to load the ivtv module, but I don't know what apt source I should add to get mythtv. I'm using breezy instead of hoary.
