rhythmbox driving me crazy...


I really want rhythmbox to work here and I can't figure it out...

I got all the packages I needed (gstreamer, faad2, libid3tag...) off of packs.slack.it and installed them and when I try and run rhythmbox I get this...

Code:
rhythmbox: error while loading shared libraries: libiconv.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Does anyone know how to fix this? I've been banging my head against the wall for about 4 hours now trying every way I can think to make this program work. I really really REALLY need a linux program to organize my music, as I have a ton of it.

Thanks to anybody that can provide some help

-Tim

Ok, this is my 1st post ever. I've got the exact same problem - word for word as Camasii.

Is there an easy answer to this problem?

Thanks,

Bryce.

I would try downloading a libiconv-1.5 rpm, converting it to a tgz file with rpm2tgz then extracting libiconv.so.2 to /usr/lib

Or just use the source code - it's easier than rpm2tgz

Oh yeah, I just googled libiconv.so.2 to find what program used it.
Anyway, here is the link to the source
http://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/libiconv/...v-1.9.1.tar.gz
