isn't libifp support build in into amaroK (as distributed via Debian/Kubuntu)?
It's not that I'm afraid of compiling the source, but I would lose the
possibility to update the Kubuntu Desktop "the Debian way". :-(
There is a Debian package for libifp, and I think I even have it
installed. If amaroK can manage iFP devices without recompiling how do
I enable support?
BTW, I have found a BLOG article (by Seb Ruiz, November 20. 2005)
about iFP device support in amaroK:
Is this what you get by - and only by - compiling the amaroK sources?
