Comment 1 Aurelien Bompard 2006-05-20 03:23:07 EDT
Is it a playlist of local tracks, or is it streaming ?
Could you try with the Helix engine ?
Comment 2 Suchandra Thapa 2006-05-20 15:20:33 EDT
The playlist is local tracks.  The helix engine doesn't support mp3 tracks so it
wouldn't be applicable but I've recreated the  amarok rpm with support for the
xine engine and it has worked without problems when I installed and used that. 

I've previously attached gdb to a busy process and got a backtrace but didn't
record it.  I'll try to reinstall the original rpm and try that again.  This is
on  a dual processor machine so I might be hitting a race condition since it
happens at random times.
Comment 3 Aurelien Bompard 2006-05-27 10:08:15 EDT
OK, the gstreamer engine is not quite finished in Amarok, which is why they
removed it from the final 1.4 tarball. If the xine engine works for you, then fine.
