Re: Trouble with the new Amarok version

What bothers me is that the Amarok devs removed the gst10 engine
deliberately from the final 1.4 tarball. I've added it back for x86_64
because there wasn't any other engine available there, but I'd like to stay
as close to upstream as possible.

This is a really crap-tastic situation for amarok users, regardless of
distribution.  I think to keep yourself sane as the maintainer caught
in the middle, you should turn the bugreports into a drinking game.
Everytime someone new complains about the lack of gst support.. you
get to drink a shot of tequila!

I hope amarok users are able to work through the issues with the
upstream developers.  I find it an extremely odd decision right before
the release, considering that amarok's "big thing" is audio engine
neutrality. Hard to take that claim seriously if they aren't actually
shipping support for engines  that are part of the G-K desktop stacks.
