Very wierd problem, two libs depend on each other


I am having a lot of trouble with VLC and it seems that it tells me about some problem at configure-time about libcdio and libcddb. So I try to install these two and I get some errors on both packages.

This is when I try libcdio 0.70:
Code:
checking for libcddb >= 0.9.4... Package libcddb was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `libcddb.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'libcddb' found
configure: WARNING: new enough libcddb not found. CDDB access disabled. Get libcddb from http://libcddb.sourceforge.net
And this is when I try libcddb 0.9.6
Code:
checking for libcdio >= 0.67... Package libcdio was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `libcdio.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'libcdio' found
configure: WARNING: new enough libcdio not found. CD reading in CDDB test program disabled. Get libcdio from http://www.gnu.org/software/libcdio/
I saw that this was only warnings, no error but at install time none of them gets installed, the makefile just gives me errors then.

How can I solve this?

given lbcddb only needed libcdio 0.6.7 I'd start there.

Yeah, but it was pretty easy to solve. I just downloaded an old version of one of the packages, then I saw that my env var PKG_CONFIG_PATH was empty so I fixed that, then I could install the next and at last upgrade the first, old I had installed.

Some work and problems but better then the hell of M$, IMO. :P

I solved this by installing both packages with
one command. dpkg -i package-1 package-2
