Problem:

No SUSE 10.1 RPM’s for latest version of Banshee are available.

SOLUTION:

Build and install Banshee on SUSE Linux 10.1.

EXAMPLE:

  1. If you have an older version of Banshee installed then start with uninstalling it (i.e Yast, remove all Banshee RPM’s).
  2. Install these packages (using Yast):
    • mono-devel
    • monodoc-core
    • sqlite-devel
    • libmusicbrainz-devel
    • gstreamer010-devel
    • gstreamer010-plugins-base-devel
    • libgnomeui-devel
    • gnome-desktop-devel
    • nautilus-cd-burner-devel
  3. Get the latest version of Banshee from http://banshee ( http://banshee/ )-project.org/. In this scenario the version was 0.11.1

    Download the files:

    banshee-0.11.0.tar.gz
    banshee-official-plugins-0.11.0.tar.gz

  4. Unpack Banshee (banshee-0.11.0.tar.gz) to a temp directory.
  5. Open a terminal in this directory and run:
    ./configure

    Run:

    make
  6. Switch to root (su)
    Run (will default install to /usr/local):
    make install
  7. Exit to your regular user and start Banshee (/usr/local/bin/banshee &)
  8. Installation of Banshee plugins are done the same way. In my case I unpacked banshee-official-plugins-0.11.0.tar.gz and run the commands above (i.e “./configure” “make” “make install”)

You’re done, enjoy!

ENVIRONMENT:

Open SUSE 10.1
Should work on SLED 10 but not verified
