Description of problem:
Cannot open assembly @libdir@/cowbell/cowbell.exe.
Need I say more?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run cowbell at the command prompt.
Error message: Cannot open assembly @libdir@/cowbell/cowbell.exe.
and program exits.
No error message and program starts.
Created attachment 305174 [details]
Modify the sed command to expand the @libdir@ in cowbell.in
Makefile.in doesn't expand all the variables in cowbell.in, leaving @libdir@
To the spec file and it works.
Above patch works, but due to changes in Amazon api, fetching any information no
longer works on the 0.2 branch. Using 0.3 pre-release from svn instead, as this
provides expected functionality via musicbrainz. Updated package, including
above patch, tested by me to work on both i386 and x86_64, pending -testing
inclusion for F-9 now: See
$ rpm -q cowbell
Cannot open assembly /usr/lib/cowbell/cowbell.exe.
This is on an x86_64 system with the latest version of cowbell. The problem is
that in /usr/bin/cowbell, libdir is defined as "/usr/lib/cowbell" instead of
As a follow up on comment #3, after I changed the definition of libdir in
/usr/bin/cowbell to /usr/lib64/cowbell, I get this error:
