I have moved to Debian Lenny, and I wanted to install the Amazon mp3 downloader so I could spend all my $$ on music. As you probably know, Amazon makes you install their downloading program if you want to buy a whole album, not just one song at a time. But the software only works in Debian Etch, not Lenny. Here's how I made it work in Lenny.
1. Download the Amazon software. You will get amazonmp3.deb
in your downloads folder (in my case, ~/Desktop
2. Edit your /etc/apt/sources.list
file so you will have Etch repositories. To do this, first back up the file. Then find 2 lines that look like this:
deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ lenny main
deb-src http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ lenny main
They may not be exactly the same as mine, but they should start with "deb" and "deb-src" and end with "lenny main".
Make a new copy of those 2 lines, and then change "lenny" to "etch" in each of them. You should now have the original 2 lines like those above, and 2 new lines like this:
deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ etch main
deb-src http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ etch main
3. Start up Synaptic Package Manager. Search for libboost. Find the following packages in the resulting list, and mark them for installation:
Be sure you pick the 1.33.1 version of each!
Then apply the changes by clicking Synaptic's green check-mark icon. Then close Synaptic.
4. Start up a terminal and issue
sudo dpkg -i ~/Desktop/amazonmp3.deb
(or use the path to your download directory if it's different).
If all is well, you won't get any error messages.
5. Check the installation by issuing
You should see the GUI program, not an error message.
6. Amazon sets a cookie called "dmusic_download_manager_enabled" so it knows you have the downloader. Get the cookie by going to http://www.amazon.com/gp/dmusic/help/amd.html
and clicking the link under the "Troubleshooting" heading. You can then look for the cookie in your browser, and if it's "on" you should be OK. Poke around in Amazon & try downloading one of their free songs. If all is well, ordering the song should start up the downloader.
7. Edit /etc/apt/sources.list
again & comment out or delete the lines you added.
