    Why not use checkinstall as it creates a deb which installed and can be removed by synaptic

    checkinstall is easy

    apt-get install checkinstall

    then instead of make install

    sudo checkinstall make install

    Hi, excellent job. I would like to try PCBSD and was wondering if my guitarport will work on it.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Sorry, but I could’nt install following this instructions. Others were wrong too.
    So, just 5 seconds before see my linux-pc flying, I wrote in synaptic’s search “line6”, and that’s it!
    The only way.
    I just want to celebrate: I’m hearing Crash Test Dummies mmmm mmm mmm .
    Thanks anyway. A lot
