I'm having a hard time reproducing this. I have the same setup, Amarok from
extras, and KDE from kde-redhat.
Which engine are you using ? Did you install the amarok-debuginfo rpm ?
Comment 3 Ilya Konstantinov 2006-01-08 19:18:58 EST
This was fixed in Amarok 1.3.7. I've trivially adapted the spec for Amarok 1.3.7
(and I'm running it right now).

Please note that taglib will have to be rebuilt as well, since it's built with
an old gcc.

Amarok 1.3.7 spec

Here's the spec I've used to build Amarok 1.3.7 RPM.
Comment 5 Aurelien Bompard 2006-01-09 04:09:33 EST
Amarok in Extras is already at version 1.3.7 :

Do you still experience this problem ?
Comment 6 Ilya Konstantinov 2006-01-09 05:15:43 EST
Amarok is still at 1.3.6 in devel. Is this for a reason? (My note about taglib
needing rebuild too refers to devel)
Comment 7 Aurelien Bompard 2006-02-13 06:13:44 EST
Amarok will be upgraded to 1.4-beta in devel because rawhide is dropping
gstreamer 0.8 and only version 1.4 supports gst 0.10. I'll do this in the next days.
I'm closing this bug, feel free to reopen if version 1.3.8 still crashes randomly.
