What's the output of "sdl-version --version"? Is it less than 1.2.10? If
it's just a bit behind, you can just have Epiar ignore the version
Edit configure.in and find "1.2.10" and change it to whatever your
version is. It'll be in a line that also mentions SDL. Save and type:
./autogen.sh && ./configure && make and see if that helps.
Out of curiosity, what version of SDL does Ubuntu 10.10 ship with?
