    Problems Getting Amarok to work

    I am running CentOS 5 and for the life of me can't find a way to install Amarok and it is driving me crazy!
    I got my hopes up running and installing Amarok through Klik. It seems that it installed fine (I installed Amarok and the Amarok engines) but when I run Amarok, I get the following error:

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    amaroK could not find any sound-engine plugins. amaroK is now updating the KDE configuration database. Please wait a couple of minutes, then restart amaroK.

    If this does not help, it is likely that amaroK is installed under the wrong prefix, please fix your installation using:

    $ cd /path/to/amarok/source-code/
    $ su -c "make uninstall"
    $ ./configure --prefix='kde-config --prefix' && su -c "make install"
    $ kbuildsycoca
    $ amarok

    More information can be found in the README file. For further assistance join us at #amarok on irc.freenode.net

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Does anyone know a way I can get amaroK to find the sound engines?

    While knoppix does include KDE, you will probably get more help in a CentOs or KDE forum:

    http://www.centos.org/modules/newbb/index.php?cat=3

    http://www.kde-forum.org/

    http://amarok.kde.org/forum/

    and remember, GIYF

    This means that Amarok is using plug-ins via the KDE plug-in infrastructure. Unfortunately the KDE plug-in infrastructure uses a cache that is not aware of the plugins that are inside your cmg file. Hence, Amarok thinks they are missing.

    We are aware of this general issue. Currently, KDE applications that rely on plug-ins do not work correctly with klik. It might be possible, however, to hand-tweak the wrapper file for amarok.
