Yammi and id3lib problem


I've installed id3lib 3.8.3 and am using it with Easytag without problems but when I try to install yammi (that seems to be great music collection manager) I get couple of errors that says there is no support for id3 tag reading or writing. After the ./configure there are these warnings on the screen:

checking for ID3Tag_Link in -lid3... no
configure: WARNING: *** Warning: id3lib support disabled => no reading/writing of tags in mp3 files!

id3lib support .......: no

I'm asking if anybody have any idea what should I do to enable the id3lib support please tell me.

I had a common (or even the same) error when installing yammi. I had an id3lib-rpm installed that seemed to be not recognized by the yammi config script. The solution was to use the binaries for id3lib and to compile them by myself. But i'm not sure wether I unistalled the rpm before or not. But i guess I did. Now i'm using easytag and yammi with the manually installed id3lib without any problems.
Good luck!
