Amarok 188.8.131.52 is going to be released today, and is already available in the Packman repository (including for ppc thanks to Peter Czanik). Most notably, it fixes the Amazon cover downloading which was broken since a few weeks because Amazon changed their online API. It requires
taglib1.5 (openSUSE up to 10.3 ships with 1.4), which should be API and ABI compatible (which means that upgrading to it is safe), but if you run into problems with other applications than Amarok that use
taglib, let me know. UPDATE: if you use zypper or yast and see the following message:
then go for "Solution 1" and upgrade openSUSE's
Problem: amarok-184.108.40.206-100.pm.1.x86_64 requires taglib >= 1.5, but none of the providers can be installed Solution 1: vendor change of [SUSE LINUX Products GmbH, Nuernberg, Germany]taglib-1.4-114.x86_64 to [http://packman.links2linux.de]taglib-1.5-0.pm.1.x86_64 Solution 2: do not install amarok-220.127.116.11-100.pm.1.x86_64 Choose the number, (s)kip, (r)etry or (c)ancel>
taglib1.4 with Packman's
taglib1.5 The reason is that Amarok 18.104.22.168 now requires having taglib >= 1.5, and openSUSE only ships 1.4 (as 1.5 has been released after openSUSE 10.3). zypper/yast2 don't do it automatically because a "vendor" change (origin of the package) is considered to be something the end-user must do explicitly, not something that may happen automagically. Note that I heavily disagree with that behaviour but well.
