View Full Version : [ubuntu] Amazonmp3 install problems in Ubuntu 9.04

In 9.04 I cannot get it to install successfully, and Amazon.com is non-responsive.

I referred to http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=559952&page=6 which suggests using getlibs, but that failed too.

I referred to a chroot solution, but again apt could not install the libboost etc dependcies: http://slacy.com/blog/2009/08/running-amazonmp3-downloader-on-ubuntu-9-04-amd64-jaunty-via-a-chroot/

In short, I am in dependency hell and it seems like nobody else is? I can't find any solutions.
