Well, it is not about building debian *packages*, just how to build
from the beta tarballs,
Now looking at this, it turns out that the messages is
archived in a corrupted way!
(The reason seems to be that one line started with "From" ....).
Below are the notes again, hopefully complete

The installation (as non-root) goes to a separate place
and does not interfer with any of the debian packages itself,
so your system should stay clean ;-)

Best, Arnd

Installation notes for digikam beta

Warning: the following are just my personal *notes*
on the installation on debian sarge.
Change the installation path to whatever suits you.

mkdir /tmp/TSTDIGIKAM
wget \
wget \

export DST=/tmp/INSTDIGIKAM/
export KDEDIRS=$DST:/usr
export LDPATH=$DST/lib:$LDPATH
mkdir $DST

svn checkout svn://dev.robotbattle.com/exiv2/trunk exiv2
cd exiv2
make config
./configure --prefix=$DST
make install
cd ..

Get the following from http://extragear.kde.org/apps/kipi

tar xjf libkexif-0.2.4.tar.bz2
tar xjf libkipi-0.1.4.tar.bz2
tar xjf kipi-plugins-0.1.2.tar.bz2

cd libkexif-0.2.4
./configure --prefix=$DST
make install
cd ..

cd libkipi-0.1.4
./configure --prefix=$DST
make install
cd ..

cd kipi-plugins-0.1.2
./configure --prefix=$DST
make install
cd ..

Remark: You're missing libxslt. The htmlexport plugin will not be

tar xjf digikam-0.9.0-beta2.tar.bz2
tar xjf digikamimageplugins-0.9.0-beta2.tar.bz2

cd digikam-0.9.0-beta2
./configure --prefix=$DST --with-extra-includes=$DST/include \
