    Default Amarok with Last.FM

    I'm having a couple of problems using amarok with lastfm.

    1) When I play a custom radio station. I can't restart an already played stream. Not only do I have to exit amarok completely and restart amarok, but I also have to clear the playlist and add the station again. If I do try to play the stream after stopping it I don't get any error message. I only see "Connecting to stream source..."

    2) I can't ban or skip songs.

    Anyone know a fix for these? The official last.fm player doesn't behave like this.
    It's really that much fun!

    I experience the same problems with amarok 1.4.9.1-102.pm.1 (openSUSE
    10.3/i586) (packaged by packman).

    I've send an email to packan and the packager to see if we need to file
    a bug with the upstream, or this is package specific.

    Yes, of course it's the packman package. Great, thanks for doing the grunt work. Let me know what you hear. I can send the maintainer an email if you don't get a response.

    Pascal send me back an email, and as a result I added comment (and voted
    with 20 votes) to an existing amarok bug case:
    http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=157296

    Please, feel free to vote, as it looks like the amarok devs are not very
    in a hurry to solve this problem.

    Cheers

    I have a feeling since Last.FM changed their protocol that the amarok 1.x series will not support the new protocol. Amarok 2, which is in development is available from the build service under the KDE4:UNSTABLE branch for openSUSE 10.3, UNSTABLE KDE 1-Click Install of Amarok 2

    Thumbs up Re: Amarok with Last.FM

    Actually, if you are using openSUSE 10.3 there is the super secret project, named Neon. Neon is a nightly build of Amarok 2. This one-click install is compatible with openSUSE 10.3 and won't force you to use the KDE4:UNSTABLE branch. It rocks, thanks to Harald Sitter (apachelogger) for putting this on the build service.
