I just installed amarok (2.1.1) on openSUSE 11.2. I use gnome, not kde.
When I start the app, a little box comes up “Updating system configuration”. It has a percentage bar and loops forever.
When I cancel, I get the following:
Amarok could not find any collection plugins. It is possible that Amarok is installed under the wrong prefix, please fix your installation using:
$ cd /path/to/amarok/source-code/
$ su -c “make uninstall”
$ cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=
kde4-config --prefix && su -c “make install”
$ kbuildsycoca4 --noincremental
More information can be found in the README file. For further assistance join us at #amarok on irc.freenode.net.
I installed using yast, from the openSUSE oss repo.
Was this a clean install? Or reuse of the /home/USERNAME. I’ve seen the problem, but don’t remember what it was related to.
Following will create a new, clean amarok config:
Quit amarok, i.e. from the system tray.
Open a terminal window and do this:
rm -rf ~/.kde4/share/apps/amarok
Now start amarok again and configure it. If this does not do the job, upgrade to KDE4 4.3.3 and pick amarok 2.2 from the KDE4:Playground repo.
The ~/.kde4 files were never even created.
I installed from the KDE:4.3 repository:
Index of /repositories/KDE:/43/openSUSE_11.2
and all works well.

THANK YOU, for however many hours it took you to learn this.
The same “no audio” problem is happening for me with Firefox (e.g. YouTube) and VLC Player in gnome.
Should I suspect that’s related to kde4 also?
hi, the repository doesn’t works now. We can use instead of:
Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE3/openSUSE_11.2
important: THIS AMAROKS ITS A DIFERENT VERSION, BUT WORKS FINE ALSO
Make sure you use libxine from packman and amarok from packman.
