Anyone get Songbird to work on DSL?  It unzips fine, but seems to have a dependency problem, and it is supposed to be kinda-sorta independent.

It's a really nice program on linux, and it takes place of iTunes for those of us with iPods.

Did you look at their requirements page? It's not kinda-sorta independent. It's also at least 52MB unzipped and installed.

Please note that Linux distributors may provide packages for your distribution which have different requirements.

   * Linux kernel - 2.2.14 or later with the following libraries or packages:
         o glibc 2.3.2 or later
         o XFree86-3.3.6 or later
         o gtk+2.0 or later
         o fontconfig (also known as xft)
         o libstdc++6
   * Songbird has been tested on Fedora Core 5 and Ubuntu Dapper 6.06.

Minimum Hardware:

   * 233 MHz Intel Pentium II or AMD K6-III+ CPU (Recommended: 500 MHz or greater)
   * At least 64 MB of physical RAM (Recommended: 128 MB or greater)
   * At least 52 MB of available space on your hard drive
   * 16 bit sound card (Recommended: 32 bit sound card)
   * Speakers or headphones

Edit: GTKPod is available in the GTK2 section of MyDSL (requires the GTK2 extension).
