Pianobar on Hardy

Fantastic news! The pianobar command-line client for pandora works on Ubuntu Hardy Heron 8.04 LTS! That’s right, even my low-memory headless system with an 802.11b connection streams Pandora beautifully over SSH!

First, pick a good spot and download the packages:
wget http://github.com/wendall911/wendall911-ubuntu-packages/raw/a88963f661d0e36c081086937b53080d6e12ac8f/pianobar/pianobar_2010.5.1-i386.deb http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu/pool/universe/f/faad2/libfaad2_2.7-4_i386.deb

Then, install!

sudo gdebi libfaad2_2.7-4_i386.deb pianobar_2010.5.1-i386.deb

(One side note: if you’ve already installed libfaad2-0 for a previous version of pianobar, you can use sudo apt-get remove libfaad2-0 to remove it before the second step.)
