Yeah, frankly I only tested the build by including my PPA from launchpad, where I have a copy of gmerlin-avdecoder. > moreover, every dependency is versioned.

Ok, I'll do so in the future (I'm still learning). I removed the specific versions from the build dependencies where unnecessary. There is still the problem that gmerlin-avdecoder is not yet in debian, but I found it in the git repositories of pkg-multimedia. Is there a way to include the git repository as a deb source? How should I proceed in such a situation anyway? Is the best to wait until the dependencies makes it into debian? Thanks a lot for your support and your quick reponse Roman _______________________________________________ pkg-multimedia-maintainers mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.alioth.debian.org/mailman/listinfo/pkg-multimedia-maintainers
