AmazonMP3 downloader - need libboost (OR same old problem - where are the libraries?)


The amazonmp3 downloader needs:
Code:
libboost_filesystem-gcc42-1_34_1.so.1.34.1
I can't find it. Slack13.0, Arch, Gentoo...Google.

Any ideas?

Why is it so difficult to find some of these libraries?

For Arch at least, there is a package in the AUR. It looks like they pull libboost from Ubuntu packages.

There are also boost packages for Slackware from Alien Bob.

Oh, but not for Slack 13...hrm.

I recommend foregoing the Amazon GUI tool and instead use clamz a command line client that will download songs or albums purchased on Amazon. It is a simple compile and works perfectly.

Boost is in current right now. Have you tried taking the slackbuild from current and rebuilding it on 13?

We had a previous thread about getting Amazon MP3 downloader to work: It mentioned Boost several times:

Thanks dugan. I had been searching here using the library name. I'm reading it now.

END OF STORY

Installed clamz. (Thanks chess ). Went to the link (changing the address from amazon.com to amazon.co.uk). Fine.

Success!

The Amazon Music Downloader was successfully installed on your computer.
It will automatically launch the next time you download songs from Amazon MP3.

and then, after I'd chosen the item I wanted to buy....

Thanks for pointing this out! It's MUCH easier to install than the official one. Got it running in about 2 minutes. Only caveat: it downloads files by default into the current directory. Not a bad thing necessarily but something to be aware of.
