Yes. I've tried it three times now.

Re: Amazon MP3 in Fedora 13

This was a helpful thread. However, the recommended creation of /etc/ld.so.conf.d/amazonmp3.conf and using ldconfig has the consequence of back-leveling the libboost libraries to their earlier version of 1.37.0 from their (as of this writing) 1.41.0 for all applications (not just amazonmp3).

Instead, download boost-1.37.0-6.fc11.i586.rpm, libicu-4.0.1-3.fc11.i586.rpm, and openssl-0.9.8k-1.fc11.i686.rpm. As "root" extract the relevant SO and link files into a directory /usr/local/lib/amazonmp3 as recommended by previous posts. However, do NOT create a /etc/ld.so.conf.d/amazonmp3.conf (and if you have one, delete it and rerun ldconfig).

Instead, do the following:
1. Rename /usr/bin/amazonmp3 to /usr/bin/amazonmp3_real
2. Create a new file /usr/bin/amazonmp3 that contains the following three lines
#!/bin/bash
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib/amazonmp3
amazonmp3_real $*
3. Make /usr/bin/amazonmp3 executable

The above confines the use of the old *.so files to the amazonmp3 application.

Re: Amazon MP3 in Fedora 13

richbr4pi - I'm assuming your directions are for after amazonmp3 has been installed. In my case it won't install because it still can't see the necessary libs. I've run ldconfig (several times now) and checked to make sure that the files were in fact in place. (they didn't disappear on me). but the installer doesn't seem to be able to see them (this is both with and without the /etc/ld.so.conf.d/amazonmp3.con file in place).

Re: Amazon MP3 in Fedora 13

Well, I could load the F11 stuff, OR...

Open source pymazon does!!!

http://code.google.com/p/pymazon/

$ cd ~/src
$ hg clone https://pymazon.googlecode.com/hg/ pymazon
$ cd pymazon/
Mercurial repo is: https://pymazon.googlecode.com/hg/
$ su
# python setup.py install

Preferences -> Name Format -> ${artist}/${album}/${tracknum} - ${title}

then firefox and amazon works. Done with this!

I had the same issue, so used the --nodeps option to rpm once all the libs were in place. That installed it and it picks up the right libraries now.

BTW, the current downloadable installer is for F12, and the F11 rpms don't cut it. The same process works (download rpms, extract, copy to /usr/local, install, create the wrapper script) but you need these rpms:

boost-1.39.0-8.fc12.i686.rpm
boost-date-time-1.39.0-8.fc12.i686.rpm
boost-filesystem-1.39.0-8.fc12.i686.rpm
boost-iostreams-1.39.0-8.fc12.i686.rpm
boost-regex-1.39.0-8.fc12.i686.rpm
boost-signals-1.39.0-8.fc12.i686.rpm
boost-system-1.39.0-8.fc12.i686.rpm
boost-thread-1.39.0-8.fc12.i686.rpm

all available from http://archives.fedoraproject.org/pu...6/os/Packages/

Yeah, see, this is the exact same issue I had, and am now in whatever-heck over it - I've installed F14 since.

I think I'm not going to fool with this any more - it's way too much hassle.

Re: Amazon MP3 in Fedora 16

Just in case anyone else is wondering, Clamz is now in the Fedora repo and works well - successfully downloaded 3 mp3s from the UK amazon store this afternoon. It is criminal that Amazon cannot be bothered to maintain access to their own store. They should develop a GUI for this and pay the developer!
