Manually Resolving Dependencies

Use "apt-file" to find what package the missing lib is provided by.

$sudo apt-get install apt-file
$sudo apt-file update

Mythmusic unable to build because of an missing library...

$./configure --enable-mythmusic
 MythMusic requires taglib.

After looking in the configure script we find...

if has_library libtag && has_header taglib/fileref.h ; then
    echo "MythMusic requires taglib."

What package do we need to install...

$apt-file search taglib/fileref.h
 libtag1-dev: usr/include/taglib/fileref.h
$sudo apt-get install libtag1-dev

The taglib dependency is now met and we can configure and build Mythmusic.
