I have updated amarok via yum to version 1.4.2-1.fc5.
when i try to start it:

[Deady@penkov ~]$ amarokapp
amarokapp: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libamarok.so.0: undefined symbol: _ZN9KLineEdit13focusOutEventEP11QFocusEvent
[Deady@penkov ~]$

how can I fix it?

Try rebuilding the source rpm.

# rpm -e amarok
# yum install amarok-1.4.1
# yum install amarok-extras-nonfree-1.4.1

solved my problem :)

rebuilding from source needs installing to many devel packages, and I'm so lazy

Just out of curiosity, does anyone know why the Amarok developers requested that Amarok not be build on 64 bit systems? The .spec file has those architectures excluded and a comment saying that the Amarok devs requested this.

I don't know if this is the reason, but since gstreamer was dropped from amarok at 1.4.1, we had the strange situation of amarok not having an engine for x86_64 fedora. I'm not too sure about the rest of the story though.

Okay...I read the comments in the spec file more closely and you're right. It turns out that the amarok dev requested the exclude because of the strange situation.

*Mental Note* RTFM next time.
