[Tellico-users] Import audio CD data no longer works

One way you can check about how Tellico was compiled is to used the ldd command.
ldd `which tellico`
(Those are back-ticks). That will list all the libraries against which
Tellico was compiled. See if libkcddb shows up in that list.
Looking at the Fedora packaging info, I do see that back in September,
the build switched from using the full kdemultimedia-devel pkg to the
libkcddb-devel pkg. So in theory, it should be working.
But this rpm info does not show a dependency on libkcddb which is puzzling.
Since I don't have access to a Fedora system, that's about all I can check.
