If you need the source RPM for rebuilding on a different version/architecture or RPM-based distribution: booh-0.9.3-0.1.20060mdk.src.rpm, and possibly exiv2-0.16-3mdv2008.1.src.rpm.

Source Code

To use sourcecode directly, first you need to know that Booh needs ruby, ruby-gettext >= 0.8.0, ruby-gtk2 >= 0.12 and gtk2 >= 2.8.
