 +====== IMMS ======
  
 +So what is it? Lets quote the [[http://www.luminal.org/wiki/index.php/IMMS/IMMS|website]]:
 +
 +>IMMS is an adptive playlist framework that tracks your listening patterns and dynamically adapts to your taste.
 +>Currently plug-in for XMMS and Beep Media Player are available.
 +
 +So if it works as announced, it's what I always dreamed of ;-)
 +
 +===== SQLite 3 =====
 +
 +IMMS needs SQLite version 3 which is currently not available for [[Debian]], so we have to compile it our self (using [[stow]] to install). Get the source from the [[http://www.sqlite.org/download.html|download page]] and install libreadline.
 +
 +  #> apt-get install libreadline5-dev
 +  $> wget http://www.sqlite.org/sqlite-3.0.8.tar.gz
 +  $> tar -xzvf sqlite-3.0.8.tar.gz
 +  $> cd sqlite
 +  $> ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/stow/sqlite-3.0.8
 +  $> make
 +  #> make install
 +  #> cd /usr/local/stow
 +  #> stow sqlite-3.0.8
 +
 +Thats it :-)
 +
 +===== Compiling IMMS =====
 +
 +IMMS is now availble in version 2 but not in [[Debian]] (maybe because of the missing SQLite 3).
 +
 +Get some requirements first:
 +
 +  #> apt-get install xmms-dev libtag1-dev libpcre3-dev fftw3-dev libglib2.0-dev
 +
 +Then fetch the sourcecode from IMMS' [[http://www.luminal.org/wiki/index.php/IMMS/Download|download page]], unpack and compile:
 +
 +  $> wget http://switch.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/imms/imms-2.0.tar.bz2
 +  $> tar -xjvf imms-2.0.tar.bz2
 +  $> cd imms-2.0/
 +  $> ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/stow/imms-2.0
 +  $> make
 +
 +Well and thats it. Compiling fails. The README states XMMS 1.2.7+ is enough. But it looks like a patch for XMMS 1.2.10 is required (as far as I could see it will be in the next release (1.2.11). Dammit. I'm not going to compile this whole damn XMMS thingy.
