Amarok doesnt work with the gstreamer engine anymore. It either has to be compiled against Helix framework or Xine framework. It is currently build against the Helix framework which doesnt have support for x86_64 architecture.

Xine lib is currently under review

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=205798

It has taken a long term for legal cross checking. However it is mostly complete now. When it is pushed into extras, Amarok would be probably build against Xine lib and will be available back on x86_64.

for me the only purpose of the computer is for Amarok. and Internet.

FC6 sucks!!!

Cruise - clearly this isn't working for you. You've been a great asset to the Forum, but if a distro's not working, it's just not working. I could suggest you drop back a version, but there's also a new release of Ubuntu 6.10 to explore and a ton more of them out there that might have everything working properly for your machine. I'd poke around with some live CD's and see if you can find what's right for your personal taste. Heck, I'm happy with FC (especially with FC6) and also PCLinuxOS, but I'm going to boot Ubuntu 6.10 myself and ... some day... I WILL boot the Hurd!

Booted the new Xubuntu last night. Everything worked except no xsane. Pretty snazzzy for a traveling live distro. Booted the new PClinuxOS live CD two nights ago. Impressive! But, booted FC 6 several nights ago. Its got some issues, but on the whole, I really like it. I'll retain FC5 for a while while FC6 gets her kinks worked out. But then... FC6? You bet!

nah, bob,

No pain no gain. I believe Fedora is the best Linux distribution there is, she can be a real B**ch, sometimes, but i do know that she will never let me down.

on linux, if its broke, it CAN be fixed, and
once its fixed, it CANT be broke,

ill simply compile amarok from source,

ignore my wineing, temporary "pissed off"ness

It's okay, Cruise, you're sure entitled to a rant or two. I always advise to wait for 30 days before installing each new version, but then I'm searching for those leaked mirrors right along with everyone else. :D

do u have any idea why i have this retarded evolution problem, where once i boot into gnome, i my first kill evolution-data-server first before i can run evolution.

by the way pulling Amarok out of Fedora, just because it doesnt work with gst, was a low blow, i thought I read the relese notes, i didnt see any mention of it.

There is a couple of problems reported on evolution in bugzilla waiting on reporter to provide more feedback. You can try adding your comments to it.

Read what I said earlier. Amarok is a extras package and it has NOT been killed. This is a temporary issue of not being available on x86_64 architecture because of a change in upstream media fraemwork support. The release notes cover Fedora Core primarily. Amarok is a extras package. Anyone with a wiki account is free to add additional notes to it however.

I already answered that just above. Read it again.

Glad to hear that amarok will still be availabe in the 32-bit versions. That was one application that I use quite a lot and would really miss.

I've been compiling Amarok myself now for a while (even w/ the package available for x86_64) and it's been a pretty painless process. If you feel comfortable w/ the SVN version, they have a nice script to check out the svn, compile, install, and update Amarok.
