That's no problem. I do the following:
# get a recent exiv2 (if it is not yet installed on your system
tar xzf exiv2-0.9.1.tar.gz
and then use the attached install script to get the current version from
sh ~/.install_digikam.sh | tee install_log.txt
And that's all ;-). Of course, if there are problems while running
install_digikam.sh this might take some time to find out.
For the first installation you could also try to copy and paste the
contents of the script line-by-line to see if every step succeeds.
Hope this helps,
