Just to be sure, you ran 'apt-get install ipodder' or the equivalent?

I mentioned Sid specifically because I don't run Sarge.

What does "tried Sid and my system crashed" mean, specifically?

I installed 'ipodder' from the Sid archives and it runs just fine (although
it won't run as root on my computer).  It looks to me like 'ipodder' is
just a bittorrent client without any iPod interface; the "You Rock!"
introduction suggests subscribing to the ipodder-dev mailing lists.  Have
you tried that and/or checking the Debian bug-tracking system?

If you just want to use bittorrent, wouldn't some other bittorrent client be
just as good if ipodder doesn't work for you.

What does "manage podcasts" mean?  In spite of the overused, non-descriptive
buzzword syndrome, a "podcast" is just an audio file.
