Ditch Amarok and install Clementine, it’s a fork of Amarok 1.4, Works.
Available in OSS.

i already thought about that, but there are still some things i need amarok for…
i also thought about quitting kde altogether, because it is so memory-consuming and with each version it becomes slower and slower, and more and more things don’t work any longer (amarok, kmail, pim, …).
but surprisingly on my archlinux installation everything works quite ok and a lot faster than on opensuse… so instead of leaving kde i think i stay with kde and switch to archlinux…
Seriously?!? That’s your reply? Are you taking the ****? >:)
OK, its only Amarok, so get rid.
But why stop there?
It’s only KDE.
It’s only opensuse.
It’s only Linux.
Let’s get rid of them too, eh?
Then we can all go back to windows.
Your ‘**** off I don’t give a ****’ attitude is an absolute disgrace and maybe acts as a shining example as to why Linux will never be accepted by the masses.
And I see your an admin (god - they must be desperate for admin’s), so I expect that you will quickly delete my message.

that isn’t my experience with amarok. i’m using KDE 4.8.3, and amarok
still runs exceptionally well, without consuming too much resources; if
one likes the fancy interface with all the schnick-schnack is a different
if you want to enjoy trouble-free KDE applications, it might be advisable
to upgrade to the latest release (4.8.3), which was a bug-fix release.
Found that my Amarok 2.5.0-19.3-x86_64 from Packman failed to start after I upgraded libmysqlclient18, libmysqld18, mysql-community-server & mysql-community-server-client via Zypper update from v5.5.16-3.3.1 to v5.5.23-3.6.1.
The only way i could get Amarok to start again (with all my 28,000 tracks) was to downgrade the mentioned packages again.
I spend my working life debugging & testing software, the last thing I wanted to do tonight was more of the same

Then this is not an Amarok issue and could even effect also Clementine.
The post was from months ago so I’m assuming the problem should be fixed
I was using solely Amarok myself for years.
Can’t remember exactly anymore which version it was that made me look
for an alternative.
Luckily I wasn’t alone and Amarok 1.4 got forked.
I’m recommending Clementine in general.

It’s not Amarok, it’s mysql. And a true bug too. I run a development environment for a dozen of websites, mysql errors all over the place. Daemon failed to start at boot a couple of times, paths were found invalid. Reverting to default mysql or mariadb reverts things back to normal.
Why does openSUSE use Mysql anyway? Seen Java, there one should expect nothing good from Msql. I think user should have Maria-db by default. I recall Mageia did this intelligent move for KDE.
Rembember, first they laugh, then they fight you. Well laughing is over some time now, isn’t it.
