I've had problems with Amarok crashing so I reinstalled. I think its the Nvidia Driver, so I read on another thread. I tried the uninstall and init 3 thing and needed gcc and a few more files that were not installed. In the end I had enough and reinstalled. Now Amarok runs. If I install the nvidia driver I have an idea that it will crash like Ayrton Senna, or maybe quicker. so is there a simple work around.
I have a problem with amarok crashing all the time almost, at then end using 'strace amarok' from console allowed to open it. Is there a way to solve this ? (contact distribution packagers) : details provided here Amarok 2.4 is crashing at each start - KDE Community Forums
Sometimes the KDE notifier shows up an error that freeze up plasma creating a bucle for infinite notices saying the same thing: "Unable to create io-slave: klauncher said: unknown protocoll <<amarok-sqltrackuid>>".
Sometimes same notice appears about 16 consecutive times before plasma crashes.
This is: KDE 4.6, Amarok 2.4, openSUSE 11.3 32bits.
the issue i am having has been narrowed down quite a bit through various posts from here and on google. the set up is amarok 2.3.1, kde 4.4.5 and fedora 13. when i am scanning my collection amarok crashes. the music is on a second mounted hard drive with an ntfs formatting. i have copied the same folder to a ext3 formatted second hard drive, my main linux partition (ext4) and its location on my third ntfs drive. from my linux partition and from the ext3 partition the folder is scanned fine but on the ntfs partition it fails to complete and crashes.i tried amarokcollectionscanner stand alone it scanned the entire ntfs partition fine but when scanned from amarok through the rescan collection button, it crashes. it is about 200 gigs of music so i am not really keen on moving the entire collection. i have been working on this for a while and have not figured out a work around or how to fix this
I have a 2005 emachines desktop tri-booting WinXP, Puppy Linux 5.2.5, and Ubuntu 10.04 LTS AMD64. I installed Ubuntu 10.04 LTS today from DVD and ran the update manager. The only other package I've installed is GParted. The computer has crashed twice today. Once when using Firefox and once while idling. Pictures off screen are attached.
Specs: 871 MiB of memory AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3200+ 160GB hardrive, 19 GB Ubuntu partition, 1 GB swap partition, rest ntfs WinXP 60GB hardrive, 1GB Puppy partition, rest ntfs data partition Hardware: Internal graphics card (VGA), keyboard, and mouse Using wireless USB adapter to access internet (Netgear WG111v2) Has one CD drive and one DVD drive
I've been messing around with this for a while trying different mesa packages so far none of them have resolved the issue. XFCE, Fluxbox all work however kde wont load for some reason. Ive even tried using the drivers direct from dell as this is a poweredge t310.code...
It seems like it is mostly happening when I am running fire fox. The screen goes black (but in in sleep mode) and I have to push the power button. After I push power button the screen goes marron-ish with an ubuntu logo with a 4 animated dots and then turns off.
when I start the PC up again I get an error about the Power Manager not ending correctly. It has happened 3 times so far today alone.
how to get Amarok 1.X installed on 11.2? I updated to 11.2; and as far as I can tell it's only got A2. I am REALLY DISPLEASED with A2 and want to go back to 1.4. I couldn't 1.4 any where for downloads; as far as repos go.
I am not having any luck with the 'out-of-the-box' version of Amarok on 11.2. It is missing a lot of features (syncing with my fuze most notably). So I figured that I would go to the latest version, but the one-click install from backports (2.2.2-4.1) reported that it could not install amarok-xine and amarok-libvisual. It installed anyway, but was not stable at all. I thought that that install process was supposed to do the updates for me. I went back to the 2.1.1 version, but it still crashes pretty frequently.
Trying banshee right now. Anyway, the big question is... do I go up, down, or off for Amarok? I have a Sansa Fuze and would love to sync music with it, but Amarok is not getting the job done right now. I have read of people going back to 1.4, but after my attempt to install 2.2.2, I'm not so sure that I'm doing it right. Should what I did have worked? I'd like to find one that will get album art and transfer it to my fuze as well (folder.jpg is what seems to make it the happiest).
I'm using Amarok 1.4 and when I select the playlist=>burn to CD, k3b doesn't apear. I get the prompt that asks if I want to make an audio or data disk. Only the Audio CD works; the data disk option doesn't work.
I'm running OS 11.2x86_32, KDE 4.4.3 with the latest updates and a problem has cropped up with Amarok (version 2.3.0). When starting the app it keeps saying there is no mp3 support and do I want to install it. Tell it yes, and restart the program and it says the same thing at each start. What's strange is that mp3's play just fine. I've run the 10 steps for troubleshooting and all the codecs are fine, this appears to be an Amarok only problem. SMplayer works fine, Kaffeine and VLC too.
I have a vast amount of MP3's but I can't seem to get Amarok to play them, Amarok opens up and I can see all my music in the music folder with no problem but when I select an MP3 and select Play I get nothing. I can convert my CD collection to OGG.VORBIS but I don't want to go through that process all over again. Currently I'm using 11.2 64bit,
suddenly I just could not get it to run. The coloured startup came up but nothing else. So I ran it as su from a terminal and this was the result:<unknown program name>(6552)/:KUniqueApplication: Cannot find the D-Bus session server: "Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken." <unknown program name>(6551)/: KUniqueApplication: Pipe closed unexpectedly
I'm having trouble playing some mp3's through Amarok, all other media players are fine with the mp3's in question. Tested on VLC and Audacious. Most other mp3's play through Amarok though. Why this problem. I'm using the gstreamer backend. I tried changing it to xine but then nothing would play. I really like Amarok and want to use it as my main player, so this issue is a little irritating.
I run Amarok 2.4.3 from KDR 4.7. I noticed that Last.fm is not listed among the services.Nor is the usual "Like" icon displayed in the middle pane. And Amarok doesn't scrobble. I have liblastfm0 installed and I installed liblastfm (no "0") from KDR yesterday, but that didn't help. So these should all be from the same repo (can't check right now as package kit is doing updates). Any clue what I have to do to get the service back? I use openSUSE 11.4 and KDE 4.7 from the Release repo.
After upgrading my Lenovo T61 to openSUSE 11.2 (64 bit)/KDE 4.3.1.playing mp3/Internet radio (Last.fm) or DVDs using VLC works fine.When trying to play mp3s/Last.fm with Amarok 2.1.1 or when trying to play DVDs using LinDVD there is no sound at all although each player appears to be processing each of the media correctly. When testing sound output with the Amarok settings (backend Xine) I get test sound output with these device types
- HDA Intel (AD198xAnalog) - Pulse Audio
But none with
- HDA Intel (AD198xDigital) - HDA Intel, AD198x Digital(IEC (S/PDIF) Digital Video Output).
Could it be that some other sound server, such as ALSA etc is blocking/competing with the audio hardware? How do I get Amarok/LinDVD to output sound?
Isn't the scrobbler (or whatever it is called) built into the newer Amarok as it used to? I recently upgraded to 2.3.1 and I can not find any possibility to connect with Last.fm. Do one have to install it separately instead?I am on OS 11.2 and upgraded through KDE application update repo.
I listen to some voice mail messages over the web. Firefox downloads the message as a ".wav" file, and then invokes amarok to play it.What I have been noticing, is that amarok seems to cut the message short.As an additional test, today after playing a message on amarok, I tried playing the same message with kaffeine. There was significantly more to the message when played on kaffeine. The particular message ended with the phone number I should call back (if I wanted to). None of that ending sentence showed in the amarok playback
Suse 11.3 KDE 4.4 Amarok - Standard version that comes with 11.3 I start Amarok, which still worked fine yesterday and this morning. I get the Amarok splash screen and then it disappears and the Crash Handler with the following message appears.
I'm having an issue with playback in Amarok 2.3 on openSUSE 11.3. When using xine, Amarok will playback songs very quickly, probably something like 3X-4X faster than it should be. There is also no audio output when it does this. Using gstreamer it plays back at normal speed, but also without audio output. I've done some searching for this problem, but haven't found anything helpful. Any ideas are greatly appreciated. Below I'm listing all the multimedia/codec packages that I have installed.
Sound is working fine-- I can test my sound card in YAST and get sound when I play audio or video files using kaffine. But when I try to use amarok or banshee I get only silence, even when I just try to play system sounds.
