Re: [Rhythmbox-devel] NFS/vfs, Rhythmbox and album art.


Unfortunately I have been unable to follow your branch because it has
started using something called 'totem-plparser' which I can't figure
out how to add to my debian-unstable installation.

Just to make sure I am not doing something stupid, here is what I did,
first when you were at patch-88 and just now with patch-97.

I changed directory to rhythmbox--merge--0.9--patch-55 and gave the

% tla update

followed by

% make distclean
% ./ --prefix=<somedir>

but it dies on:

No package 'totem-plparser' found ...

Thanks for any tips.
