Hi Arnout,

Thanks for your note.

I was able to compile it on my old Debian machine, but first I had to
build bzip, rubberband, vamp, and installed the jack-sdk and some other
stuff. Finally, it compiled and it looks great...it starts with this
warning dialog box though:

No audio available

Could not open an audio device for playback.

Automatic audio device detection failed. Audio playback will not be
available during this session.

Any advice ? Can you point me to packaging instructions ?
