Root

Just a quick suggestion, make sure you're the root user when your installing the amazon mp3 downloader.

still not working

I have the same problem. logging in as root does not solve the problem for me. I also have followed the advice by Perish in FedoraForum.org > Fedora Support > Software > Amazon MP3 in Fedora 13 thread but I still can't have it running.

My next suggestion would be to contact Amazon's technical department to see if this problem is a known bug.

It is fairly well known that the amazon mp3 downloader only works with specific revisions of certain distributions.

I use clamz, open source alternate. In Fedora 14 it's available with the distro. Has worked perfectly so far.

Looks like the OP needs different versions of the libraries that the software requires. sprklchild, are you still having a problem?

Interesting. I hadn't heard of this and since I've had no luck with asking Amazon to provide a tarball for their software (I don't care about it being closed source) for those of us who don't use RPM or .deb-based packages, I'll be taking a look at clamz.

Welcome to LQ.

'libcrypto.so.8' and 'libboost_xxxxxx.so.4' : Both seems to be non existing.

This site suggests to make some links :
