Banshee 1.0 RPM for Fedora 8 x86_64

Banshee Media PlayerBanshee 1.0 was released on June 5 2008. At the time of writing I haven’t been able to find an official Fedora 8 RPM build so I have built my own using the Fedora 9 source RPM and made it available here for you to download and install.

For those that don’t know, Banshee is a great multimedia player for Linux with support for iPod syncing, podcasts, streaming radio, video and lots more. For iPod owners Banshee is one of few viable Linux alternatives to iTunes.

For Fedora 8 x86_64 users you can install my build of Banshee 1.0 using the following commands:

yum localinstall banshee-1.0.0-1.fc8.x86_64.rpm --nogpgcheck

Note this a 64 bit build only! If you want to build it for i386 or another architecture then you can do so using the F9 source RPM available from Koji here.

More files, including the debug and devel packages over at my Fedora 8 page.

Usual disclaimers apply: if it breaks your machine then its not my fault.

    Thanks for this, but I have a question. yum is bombing out trying to find taglib-sharp:

    Error: Missing Dependency: mono(taglib-sharp) = is needed by package banshee

    which doesn’t exist on update-testing as far as I can tell.

    Where did you get it?

    Hi TheMatt, my bad I forgot that an updated taglib-sharp is required. I’ve uploaded it to the Fedora 8 page now. Let me know how you get on with it.

    Thanks for building this but I’m having problems getting it to run (it installs ok)

    I get the following:

    [mitcheja@ajm Desktop]$ banshee-1

    ** (/usr/lib64/banshee-1/Nereid.exe:5019): WARNING **: The following assembly referenced from /usr/lib64/banshee-1/Banshee.Services.dll could not be loaded:
    Assembly: NDesk.DBus (assemblyref_index=11)
    Public Key: f6716e4f9b2ed099
    The assembly was not found in the Global Assembly Cache, a path listed in the MONO_PATH environment variable, or in the location of the executing assembly (/usr/lib64/banshee-1).

    And for the life of me I can’t work out why, any ideas?

    My bad… that should probably have been a dependency in the RPM. I’ll try to fix it if I get chance.
