oops, that wasn't quite what I'd intended. Sorry.

The missing parts:

Get an uncrippled xine on this page and follow the instructions on how to install it. You could also use Yast to install the packages as it will take care of necessary dependencies for you (if you do it by hand you'll have to uninstall SuSE's xine-ui and xine-lib before you install the alternative versions)

http://cambuca.ldhs.cetuc.puc-rio.br/xine/

I tried it on 9.3 a few weeks ago and it worked then.
Then set up amarok to use the xine engine (I don't remember whether SuSE put the engines in a different package, you might have to install something like "amarok-xine" or "amarok-engines", search in yast for amarok).

Unfortunatly Kaffeine didn't play DVDs or mp3s after installing this xine version, it seems to be statically compiled. So if you want Kaffeine to work too, you're gonna have to find fixed packages for SuSE 9.3

You need to open up YaST Online Update (YOU), find and install the appropriate or all of the "Optional"
Multimedia Packages.

If that fails for whatever reason, google "Suse 9.3 mp3 support"

Great app! But I found both stable and development versions too crashy while playing on shared soundcards (you can do this by configuring alsa). It stops or crashes randomly even while playing radio streams...
Apart this it's a great app! It would be even greater if it could manage shoutcast directory listings...

ok, got past that last error message. It was a slightly outdated QT package. This is getting old. Might want to redo the configure script to better analyze the systems.

Now a new issue:

There hasn't been any new Qt requirements. amaroK requires whatever KDE 3.3 requries. What do you mean by "slightly outdated"?

Here's what I finally did.

The first solution I stated is what took care of the the first error I reported. I'd been using amarok 1.3 beta2 for some time and, infact, I'd compiled it.

What'd happened only the day before was that I had updated to KDE 3.4.2 from KDE 3.4.0. After doing so I received an error referring to kdeinit (just after logging in--where KDE would set itself up).

I then located and installed the most current Qt I could find. That was the only change I made up to this point. Voila! After installing it I got rid of the kdeinit (at the interprocess communication setup of the KDE launch).

I was pleased.

I also then tested to see if Kaffeine would now work. Yesterday (prior to the QT upgrade) Kaffeine no longer worked. After the upgrade the kdeinit went away and so did the Kaffeine issue.

Next I began my ./configure, make/make install of amarok 1.3 beta3. Upon doing so the first error message disappeared.

But...the next error cropped up.

I thought it might have to do with taglib 1.4. I double checked. I remembered when I first tried to compile it I found that during the compile I'd received the error that taglib wanted a different version of automake (or I was to change the aclocal.m4 file).

I changed the aclocal file and did the compile and was able to get it to compile and make/make install.

(Note: Just in case, though, I decided to download and install automake 1.9.5 as I had 1.9.2.)

I deleted the taglib 1.4 folder and started the compile again in order to ensure I had a clean new make.

Upon doing this I got past the 2nd message I posted.

Even though I had gotten past the 2nd error, I was still faced with a 3rd error--to me the question was "third and how many more?".

I went and reread the requirements document and the optional section and decided to downloaded MAS and a couple others. I then compiled those and installed them.

After those were installed I decided to try the compile again. I received a similar error to the 3rd error. I then chose to delete the beta3 folder and unpacked it again. After doing this I then reran the "./confugire " and then "make". This allowed it to compile properly. I then did a "make install" and finally was able to get it to work.

After this I decided to check out the program.

I went to test visualizations. Amarok reported that I didn't have libvisual installed or possibly the plugins. I was sure I had installed libvisual so I double checked libvisual. I had the recommended version.

I then chose to search for the download of the plugins. I downloaded them from the libvisual site. I then compiled them and installed them. I was able to test that they worked under amarok.

So, now, all is well--so far as I have tested it.

All prior versions of amaroK I have been able to compile on my system, including 1.3 beta2.

This 1.3 beta3 seems to have trouble at every turn. Maybe some extra work on the developers part would eliminate some of these issues.

The following error occurs after installing (without error) MAS:

/usr/bin/meinproc --check --cache index.cache.bz2 ./index.docbook
I/O error : failed to load external entity "config.docbook"

KDE packages from FC are patched so they don't have mp3 support. Try playing ogg files and it should work.
If you want unpatched KDE RPM's take a look at http://kde-redhat.sourceforge.net/

Good to see that amarok is evolving at such a rapid rate. keep up the great work.

I uninstalled 1.2.4 and installed 1.3 beta2. My old collection migrated fine. I just experienced a few problems. E.g. lyrics and wiki did not work for me. Lyrics worked fine previously.

Does anybody know where amaroK stores album cover images? I'm about to do some "spring cleaning" and a fresh install on my computer and would like to save the covers if I can. I would check the amaroK website but it's kinda down still... :-p

Thanks for the help!

I used to be a KDE user, then I switched to Gnome... Since they haven't made a GTK theme engine for KDE, similar to the QT theme engine for Gnome, it looks screwed up... Sadly I can't find a QT theme that matches the GTK theme I use, so I'm forced to have a very distracting desktop :)

No big deal, I changed my GTK theme to Clearlooks and my KDE theme to Plastik. Looks about the same, so I can run amaroK without it being too distracting. :)

Recently updated to KDE 3.4.1 and everything appeared fine then installed the latest version of Amarok v1.0.3. Now when using the arts engine Amarok locks up. This only happens when I click the play button to play streaming radio. Is there any way to verify what the error is in a crash log?
