    Question Sometimes after a configuration change I lose my codecs

    Then Amarok says it can't play m,p3s. and i either click to find the codecs or reboot and it returns to normal.
    Is there anyway to prevent this?

    There are different builds of amarok, ... and there are different sound engines which amarok can use. Which one are you using? and what openSUSE version?

    I always recommend that users endeavour to install the packman packaged rpm versions of amarok, libxine1, and mad. The Novell/SuSE-GmbH variants of those apps tend to be crippled for mp3.

    If you have not done this yet, then I first recommend you update your repositories per this URL: Repositories - openSUSE-Community adding Packman, OSS, NON-OSS, and Main Update (and no other) repositories.

    Then install the Packman packaged version of:
    amarok
    amarok-xine
    libxine1
    xine-ui
    mad
    and then in amarok select the xine engine.
