Amarok2 clean install problems

Somewhat adept Windows user / Linux newb having difficulty with a clean install of openSUSE, KDE, Amarok2.

Can’t get it to play Shoutcast or any mp3’s/FLAC files; can occasionally get Magnatune streams to play, so my sound works.

I know enough to know that I might not have proper lib files installed with YaST but do not know which files I need nor do I know any sequence required to install them. I’m still wondering why the Amarok team puts forth a piece of software that is apparently incomplete.

I would appreciate any head’s-up on what I must do to get this thing playing as well as Winamp on Windows does.

Thank you all in advance for any assistance!
