Re: Amarok

Without more info it's hard to say what is happening.

Does this message appear as soon as amarok runs, or only when you try to do something in particular?

Do other sound / multimedia programs work for you? (Examples: kaffeine, xine, mplayer.)

Did you install amarok from the fedora repositories, or is this a version from somewhere else?

Could you try running amarok, then when you get the crash, type
tail ~/.xsession-errors
in a konsole to see if there is any info on what caused the crash.

Re: Amarok

This message of Amarok crashing appears as soon as amarok runs.

Totem player, vlc player RhytomBox player working ok..

I installed Fedora 12 from dvd,

I reinstalled amarok but it was of no use.

[anup@anup ~]$ tail ~/.xsession-errors

Re: Amarok

It looks like amarok is crashing very early on in its initialization.

Sorry I can't offer much more help: you have presumably tried a wider search on the web? You could also try changing the audio settings for KDE (K menu -> System Settings -> Mulitmedia).

A last thought: I think amarok uses the xine engine. Just check you have the packages xine-ui, xine-lib, and (if you want to play mp3) xine-lib-extras-freeworld.

Re: Amarok

Try removing ~/.kde/share/apps/amarok/

You will lose your database with playlists etc. so you might prefer to rename it to see if it helps.
