Amazon MP3 Downloader


Has anyone successfully installed the Amazon MP3 Downloader in Slackware? I downloaded the Fedora 8 RPM and installed it using --nodeps, but when I run amazonmp3 it says it can't find libgtkmm. Will we need Dropline or some similar full version of Gnome to get this to work?

You simply need to install the required dependencies. You do not the full version of GNOME in order to run GNOME/GTK apps (although some may insist on installing a lot of GNOME libs). The gtkmm libraries are available in the Fedora repos, so it would have been a matter of installing them using yum. Better still, you could have done "yum localinstall filename.rpm" and the missing dependencies would have been installed for you.

Being that gtkmm eventually links back to C++, you'd better make very sure that Fedora has a version of C++ that's compatible with Slackware's, or that will fail.

Or you could build it using the slackbuild from Slackbuilds.org:

http://www.slackbuilds.org/repositor...braries/gtkmm/

I'm not familiar with this app, but you might find all the libraries dependencies here.

Thanks for the tip. It turns out the gtkmm requires cairomm which requires glibmm which requires libsigc++. I downloaded the Slackbuilds for all of them. I'll report back when it's all installed.

Well, I got it working. Besides installing all of the stuff in my previous message, I installed boost-1.34.1-i486-2gds.tgz from LinuxPackages. I also had to create the following symlinks in /usr/lib:

ln -s libssl.so.0 libssl.so.6
ln -s libcrypto.so.0 libcrypto.so.6
ln -s libboost_date_time.so libboost_date_time.so.3
ln -s libboost_signals.so libboost_signals.so.3
ln -s libboost_iostreams.so libboost_iostreams.so.3
ln -s libboost_thread-mt.so libboost_thread-mt.so.3

I haven't done much testing with it but it is working. I don't know if I'm playing with fire from any of the symlinks.

Update! I just bought Stevie Ray Vaughan's "Texas Flood" through it. Worked like a charm. I even dimed my 6M cable line!

Just an update: I got it working in Slackware 12.1 following the same steps, except I had to use the Boost package here http://slackware-current.net/package.php?id=248 and the SlackBuilds for 12.1 instead of 12.0. Apparently you must have Boost 1.34.1. 1.33 and 1.35 don't seem to work.

I know this thread is a bit old but I am looking for a hand. I keep getting this output (after following the instructions above).

amazonmp3: error while loading shared libraries: libboost_date_time.so.3: cannot open shared object file: Error 40

Any ideas? I have tried linking the libboost_date_time libs in /usr/lib to no avail.

No worries mate. You need to go to the slackbuilds website and make sure to install all dependencies. That includes liboost and others. Just search for each one... there should be an order to it, but you can figure it out by what output errors you get, thus you can mess it up only so many times.

Just make sure to make a separate folder in your builds directly and make sure you install the packages created.

I believe Amazon will let you do direct downloads, at least that's how I've been doing it the past few weeks. No downloader required.

Only for single songs... if you purchase an album, it's a requirement to have the downloading software. I have no problem with it, since they offer a linux version, and it's all DRM free. So more power to amazon. It's a valuable service, and I'll take it any day over the alternatives.

Sorry to bump a year-old thread, but there seems to be something that changed in Slackware 12.2 that is causing the Amazon MP3 downloader to crash. It will start up just fine, but as soon as you try to download something it segfaults. The last time I downloaded something successfully was on February 17, so it must've been something after that. Thoughts? My guess would be that the OpenSSL libs are the culprits.

BTW, I went back and recompiled all the stuff I mentioned above in post #5, but it still crashes in the same way.

Are you still using packages from linuxpackages.net, or are you building them from SBo?

Built them all from SlackBuilds, including Boost this time. Rebuilt them all from the same SlackBuilds today.
