Point <> to it, then.

My amarok is the one from SuSE and works fine ;-)

But I had no way of knowing that aria2 was there.

No, the "distrust" is because I don't know how it has been prepared,
knowing that aria2 needs a xml library that is not in 10.1: ie, it refuses
to make in 10.1. How was it built, then?

My remark about the masses not being able to use metalink is because the
download page does not point to rpms of metalink clients, only to sources,
and one of them is not compilable.

I have wxdfast sucesfully compiled, anyway.
