Hi all, I'm having some trouble using the Amarok music player. When i click the icon in applications, the splash screen shows up, then quickly disappears.
Running: amarok --debug in console gives me:

amarok: ************************************************** ************************************************** ********
amarok: ** DEBUGGING OUTPUT IS NOW ENABLED. PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU WILL ONLY SEE THE FULL OUTPUT ON THE NEXT START. **
amarok: ************************************************** ************************************************** ********
amarok: END__: static void App::handleCliArgs() - Took 0.00015s
amarok: END__: virtual int App::newInstance() - Took 0.0002s
[iain@iain ~]$ amarok: relocation error: /usr/lib64/libphonon.so.4: symbol pa_ext_device_manager_read, version PULSE_0 not defined in file libpulse.so.0 with link time reference

Can someone please help me with this error?
Thanks

Do you have kDE desktop environment installed?
if not, this might be the problem. Amarok needs a lot of dependencies from KDE.
So the easiest way to get Amarok working is to simply install the whole Kde desktop.

I have the following libraries all installed...

K Desktop Environment 4 - Libraries
K Desktop Environment - Runtime
K Desktop Environment - Workspace

What else do I need? Someone on the KDE/Amarok forums told me to update my Pulseaudio library, does that sound reasonable? How would I do that?

Please help!

Ensure you have the latest versions of amarok (2.2.2), phonon, (and pulseaudio)
https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/amarok
https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/phonon

The first post was likely due to mismatched phonon/pulseaudio versions.
