You will need
homebrew to install
gnutls unless you want to install it manually. Get
homebrew at http://mxcl.github.com/homebrew/
You can either then try brew update to update the
homebrew you can do
brew install pianobar
However, if after installation
pianobar is giving you an error, check out the issues at https://github.com/PromyLOPh/pianobar/issues, and if your issue is listed you may need to install the very latest version of
pianobar by doing a manual build.
To do this I’d recommend that you remove the homebrew installations of pianobar, and then manually build.
So, to remove the pianobar that was installed with homebrew, type
brew remove --force pianobar
Next see my notes about installing pianobar manually.
// download the root certificates into your home directory as ~/pianobar-cacert.pem // these are needed to help pianobar make a secure connection to pandora wget -O ~/pianobar-cacert.pem http://curl.haxx.se/ca/cacert.pem // add the path to the pianobar config file // ================================================================ echo "tls_ca_path = $HOME/pianobar-cacert.pem" >> ~/.config/pianobar/config // install the dev tools // ================================================================ brew install gnutls json-c // change to your home directory, then clone the latest version of pianobar // change to the directory created, make pianobar cd ~ git clone https://github.com/PromyLOPh/pianobar.git cd pianobar/ make clean && make CFLAGS="-O2 -DNDEBUG -W64" // run pianobar from the current directory ./pianobar // note: just typing "pianobar" instead of "./pianobar" will fail if the current directory is not in your path //after running pianobar you should get: Welcome to pianobar (2011.11.09-dev)! Press ? for a list of commands. (i) Login... Ok. (i) Get stations... Ok. // you should then be able to run pianobar on subsequent runs // by typing in ~/pianobar/pianobar no matter what your current directory is
If you’re getting:
Error: Protocol incompatible. Please upgrade libpiano
Then you should check for issues at https://github.com/PromyLOPh/pianobar/
