Amarok will not start [solved]

Recommended Posts

Just today I was faced with this problem: I cannot start Amarok. Whenever I try to start it, it hangs with the flash graphics: Amarok - rediscover your music.

 

I cannot start it from K-menu nor from terminal. This is the info in terminal:

[dude67@localhost ~]$ amarok -v
Qt: 4.6.2
KDE Development Platform: 4.4.3 (KDE 4.4.3)
Amarok: 2.3.1
[dude67@localhost ~]$ amarok -d
Calling appendChild() on a null node does nothing.

Error message was:  "org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply" : " "Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken." "

Have you recently upgraded to Mandriva 2010.1? Try removing all the amarok stuff in ~/.kde4 then try starting amarok again.

Excellent; thanks Greg! There was this:

~/.kde4/share/apps/amarok/

I renamed it and amarok started without a problem!

 

I knew I could trust you guys! :thumbs:

I tried to find a way to rename the subject to add the solved, but couldn't find a way to do so myself.

 

Thanks.

I got it working but whenever I try to add a bunch of files to try to create a play list, it crashes, but if I do it selecting some of the mp3, adding it slowly, it doesn't crash at all... :unsure:

 

does it has something to do w/ this bug?

You have the proper rpms installed, so you could try deleting your playlist located at:

 

/home/rr/.kde4/share/apps/amarok/current.xspf

 

Then open amarok and try creating a new list. If that doesn't work... I guess you will have to add them slowly. :)

well I think that's what I'll have to do because I already did that :mellow:, but thx anyway, if I just add those 1 time and save the play list I won't have to do it several times I think :huh:
