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


Build and install Banshee on SUSE Linux 10.1.


  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/ ) In this scenario the version was 0.11.1

    Download the files:


  4. Unpack Banshee (banshee-0.11.0.tar.gz) to a temp directory.

  5. Open a terminal in this directory and run:

  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!


Open SUSE 10.1
Should work on SLED 10 but not verified
