Amazonmp3 app, install on 11.2?

I get a dependency error when trying the 11.0 install off of amazon’s site, saying lib-boost is not the right version. Any ideas for getting this to work in 11.2? I’d really appreciate it! I installed 11.2 last night and really lovin’ it!

Hi
Here is a link on what to do.

If that’s too complicated, I have an rpm I built and have it running on
11.2 and can give you a download link.

What is the link? I’d rather use your RPM. That other link is for a version of boost from Suse 10.3 which is no longer supported, if I am understanding that correctly, in fact the page is going to be deleted soon. I’ll use your RPM though! Thanks a lot!

How did you know if the OP was an amazon.com or an amazon.co.uk user?

A UK Amazon user would be interested in my Howto here for 11.1 possibly. I suppose I should investigate and update it for 11.2 since Amazon (UK) don’t seem to have provided upgrades since their original downloader release (11.0 for UK) on all four supported distros (Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, being the others). :wink:

Does your rpm also work on the UK site?

Hi
Yes, you can use older libraries fine that’s the reason to install
in /usr/local/lib.

Here is the link;
http://www.fileden.com/files/2009/4/6/2393623/amazonmp3-1.1.0-mjl.2.i586.rpm

Install via


sudo rpm -Uhv amazonmp3-1.1.0-mjl.2.i586.rpm --nodeps

Just create a desktop link to /usr/local/bin/amazonmp3 and browse
to /usr/local/share/pixmaps for the icon. (I never got around to
fixing the linking…)

OK I installed the rpm, but how do I run the program? I cannot find it. Opening terminal & typing “amazonmp3” yields nothing. It says it’s already installed, but it again had a dependency error.

Hi
See the FAQ’s about using nntp :wink:

I seem to have lost my spec file and src rpm I used… do you still
have a copy?

It would be easy enough to create a spec file to build either based on
a flag in the spec file.

Hi
It’s in /usr/local/bin so try /usr/local/bin/amazonmp3 It works fine
for me on the netbook? Did you remember the --nodeps?

Hi

May find the spec file, but iirc I never got around to the source. Will search and reply by PM. :wink:
