libgpod 0.7.0 for Fedora 10 and important Amarok 2 SVN change

libgpod 0.7.0 for Fedora 10

The latest Amarok SVN snapshot requires libgpod 0.7.0 to build. Since it isn’t available for Fedora 10 (or Fedora Rawhide) yet, I decided to update and older version myself. After downloading the latest source and altering the 0.6.0 spec file, I was able to successfully build an v0.7.0 RPM myself. I’ve put the files up at in case you’re interested. Be warned though I had to break my kipi-plugins because it relies on libgpod 0.6.0 but since I haven’t got an iPod, it shouldn’t be a problem for me.

Amarok 2 SVN

As of today another popular 1.4 feature got re-introduced to Amarok 2, and I’m sure it will make a lot of people happy. Cue support is back, hurray! One downside for me personally, I haven’t been able to find any music with a cue sheet yet, so I haven’t been able to try it so far. Below you’ll find a changelog snipplet of what has changed since my latest post.

CHANGELOG (r919623)

* Cue Sheets are now supported as in Amarok 1.4, plus each cue entry
(usually a track) will be displayed as a timecode on the Progress Bar
with a nice onMouseOver popup.
* Ipod support now uses/depends on libgpod 0.7.0
* Bookmarking specific positions within local tracks and downloaded local
podcast episodes, with a nice visual indicator on the progress bar.
* When the service is active, any track, from any collection or
service, can be loved from the browser , and there will always be a love
button for the currently playing track, no matter the source

* Increased width of volume slider for greater precision.
* Use the speex, trueaudio and wavpack support in TagLib 1.5, rather than
our own plugins.
* Doubleclick on a podcast channel appends all it’s child episodes to the
* Delete and download actions will only be shown when relevant to the
selected podcast episode.
* Major refactoring of the podcast model and view to allow custom actions
per podcasts source.
* Compilation fixed for the OpenSolaris Operating System

* Fix “Stop Playing After Track”. It is working now. (BR 180486)
* Fix switching tracks in random tracks mode. (BR 176019)

I am working on a way to have automated Amarok builds like the Neon Project ( but for now I keep on building them manually on a daily base. New build are being posted to so I suggest you keep an eye on that. A friendly reminder, the RPM requires Fedora 10, KDE 4.2 and all the packages that you’d need when building it manually. My next goal is to fine-tune this. Until then, have fun playing with the latest build. 🙂

    dude i dont see your rpm anywhere…where is it? please upload it again…

  5. I removed it from my site because it turned out that it wasn’t a good thing to do (or at for at least Fedora 10 it wasn’t, broken dependencies).

    You could grab an Fedora 11 source RPM from Koji ( and rebuild it yourself if you want. Otherwise just let me know and I’ll re-upload my Fedora 10 ones. 🙂
