Amarok crash

Hi All
I seam to have audio problems since 13.2.
Anyway the problem is Amarok crashes. That happened from one day to the next. And I have not done anything to the system in the meantime.

So when trying to start Amarok via icon or via comand line I get the same msg

Starting => the Amarok Crash Handler appears with the following msg

Executable: amarok PID: 4825 Signal: Segmentation fault (11) Time: 25/03/2015 13:45:59

Since I started it via comandline the msg is

I searched through the forum to find someting similar … no luck.

What puzzels me is it happened so to speak over night. Yesterday it was working … no system changes … today it crashes ?!?

Has anybody an idea ? I tryed to use earlier versions of Amarok … same problem. De-installed it / re-installed it … same problem.

Thanks and cheers

Did you try deleting all the hidden amarok config files and folders

What repos are you using

zypper lr -d

Try to use phonon-backend-vlc instead. (install it and set it in “Configure Desktop”->Multimedia->Audio and Video Settings)

Maybe something is wrong with your gstreamer installation or you hit a gstreamer bug…

Hi Thanks for your help !

I deleted / saved all config file and in stalled the version from Packman.

I reinstalled the saved folder /home/.kde4/share/apps/amarok and got my play list back.

So it is working again !!! Why it stopped working is a mystery to me.

Thanks and cheers
