Mediavault? I run mediaTOMB on -stable/amd64. However, you cannot use it 
with libthr, as it will immediately crash. It works quite well with 
sqlite3. I think I might have had to build sqlite3 *without* thread 
support -- it isn't linked against a threading library at least. Try it 
both ways before giving up, though.
