Amarok no sound in Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty

To my dismay when I loaded up Amarok 2.0.2 after a upgrade from 8.10 (Intrepid) to 9.04 (Jaunty) I was getting a error that my sound card was broken.

However, sound worked in all other applications. The solution is to:

sudo apt-get install phonon-backend-xine
sudo apt-get remove phonon-backend-gstreamer

after that restart Amarok (if it wasn’t already closed) and hooray sound works!.


XBMC Babylon 9.04 Alpha 1 RPMs

Are beginning to come out of the oven, I’ve finally got the build farm back online and after a few script tweaks xbmc-9.04alpha1 for Fedora 10 i386 has rolled out cleanly and the rest are on the way. 🙂
