You know Tomasz, it would help if you had the slightest clue what you
wrote about BEFORE you started claiming to have the solution. Had you
bothered to read the developer documentation you might have tried this:
$ tar tzf mp3blaster_2-0b16.orig.tar.gz|head -1
$ zcat mp3blaster_2-0b16-1.diff.gz|head -2
$ dpkg-source -x mp3blaster_2-0b16-1.dsc
dpkg-source: extracting mp3blaster in mp3blaster-2-0b16
And it would have WORKED too, like it did for me just now.
The problem is an arch-specific issue which does not affect i386 build or
operation of the package. I have not had time to try and figure out
what's wrong with it (now). This package has had no end of issues,
usually regarding endianness independence which it claims to support (but
I claim it supports very badly in most versions..)
Sometime this week I will see if a new upstream exists and maybe if I'm
lucky it fixes the problem.
