Description of problem:
The time slider, whereby one can scroll forward and back, is broken. It either jumps all over the place, stays at 0:00, or moves to the end of the track. Track playback seems fine, though.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start amarok
2. Play a track
3. Look at time slider
Actual Results: Time slider doesn't represent true status of track position
Expected Results: Time slider represents true status of track position
This happens when the support for your sound card is buggy in gstreamer. What
engine are you using ? Can you use the arts engine for testing ? It's in the
package called amarok-arts.
I was using osslink.
Attempting arts output appears to cause segfault and crash. I'll get a non-busy
system happening in the enxt day or two and test with -debug packages.

Audio Controller (rev 02)
please try with the alsasink, and with the xine engine. The xine engine needs a
package rebuild to be available, because of software patents. You'll have to
rebuild the package with the "--with xine" option.
My apologies. That teaches me (once again) I should respond to bug reports first
thing in the morning. I'd mis-read as "Use arts with alsa".
I've switched to arts engine, and alsalink. Works fine now :-)
Of course, not configured alsa at all... maybe I should get more coffee.
