Has anyone had difficulty installing the amazon mp3 downloader rpm package on opensuse 11.0? I’m using the KDE 4 live cd version, and I cannot seem to install the package. I get an error regarding missing dependencies of libboost. I tried to search for libboost in yast, without any success. Anyone have any ideas?
libboost is provided by boost,search for that & install it.
Hi, thanks for the quick reply.
I searched for boost and installed everything in yast. Unfortunately I still get the same error.
Specifically, my failed dependencies are:

That’s because boost is at 1.34 in 11.0, the amazonmp3 is for 10.3

Is it possible to get version 1.33 for OpenSUSE 11? Even if there is a repository from 10.3, would it be compatible with 11? It unfortunate for Amazon that they have to build so many versions to support Linux.
Yeah. Sucks. I still have Ubuntu on my laptop simply because the Amazon downloader still works on it. I know some find it controversial but I agree that having the major Linux Distributions standardizing on core components would benefit Linux as a whole.
That’s their choice. There’s nothing stopping them from providing an API to let existing media apps such as Amarok and Banshee provide this service. That they’re providing a Linux package at all, though, is impressive and good business.
I got the wine version to work. It’s way buggy off the shelf, but using this script (http://mad-scientist.us/amazonmp3) and setting it as the default app for .amz files has it doing ok.
I tried to install the older version of the boost library from the build service in order to get this working, but YaST wanted to downgrade a bunch of stuff including OpenOffice, so that’s not an option.
Is there a way to create a “sandbox” of sorts for binaries like this that depend on older libraries (short of running a VM)?
I got the openSUSE 10.3 version of the downloader working under 11.0. If anyone’s interested, I added a wiki page that explains what you need to do.
rhasselbaum Your Wiki worked GREAT! rotfl!
Thanks so much!
