I just checked on my Corel box. You have two version of mtv
available: one for glibc2.0 and the for glibc2.1

It works (well runs, I have no VCDs to test with at work) and display
help (mtvp -h). Even the graphical intreface works too. That .deb was

When I install the glibc2.1 version (mtv_1.1.0.20-3_i386.deb) it
promptly fails. You don't seem to have any dependancy information in
your .deb's which is probably a bad thing.

Debian 2.1 ships with libc6-; Corel has the same
version. Debian 2.2 has libc6-2.1.3-7 (currently). Perhaps depending
on the right version of the libc6 would be good. Also for the glibc2.0
version you provide an SDL deb, yet it isn't depended upon.

They've installed the wrong version; perhaps updating your ver web
site with information for Corel would be useful too.
