[Slackbuilds-users] Pianobar fix for TLS fingerprint mismatch error

Around the end of last year Pandora changed their certificate, so pianobar will not work unless you give it the new fingerprint.
In your pianobar config file (~/.config/pianobar/config) you need to have the following line:     tls_fingerprint = 13CC51AC0C31CD96C55015C76914360F7AC41A00
(By the way, an example config file is in /usr/doc/pianobar-$VERSION/)
The next time Pandora updates their cert again, you can quickly find the value needed by executing:     sh /usr/doc/pianobar-$VERSION/example-scripts/tls_fingerprint.sh
Finally, some people may wonder why I have not updated the SlackBuild for pianobar to the latest version.  The reason is because the 2013.09.15 version is the last one that does not require ffmpeg as a build dependency, and that version still works fine.  While some people may already have ffmpeg installed (myself included), I prefer to keep the dependencies as minor as possible.  If, however, pianobar users would rather me update the buildscript please let me know.

Warmest Regards,
