Amarok fails to start

Sat Oct 18, 2014 6:29 pm
I have amarok 2.8.0-23.3-x86_64 installed on a PC running OpenSUSE 13.1 and KDE 4.11.5. It worked fine until a week ago, but now, when I click on the Panel icon for amarok, it seems to be starting--the wolf icon jogs up and down on the desktop for about 15 seconds, but then, instead of a window appearing, it just stops, and neither window nor icon in the system tray appear. I tried running "amarok" and then "amarok -d --nofork" in Konsole (I don't know what the second command means, but it was recommended in another forum post response for a user who had trouble with the application at startup), and got the following error message:

[email protected]:~> amarok -d --nofork
amarok: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/libamarokshared.so.1: undefined symbol: _ZTIN6TagLib3Ogg4Opus4FileE


What should I do?

that type of message usually indicates an incompatibility between the app and a library it needs to access

google'ing suggests an incompatibility with lib tags http://www.google.com/url?q=http://ubun ... yA_fHnzD7A

guessing you should make sure your libtags and Amarok packages are the correct ones, where' you get the Amarok package?


OpenSuse Leap 42.1 x64, Plasma 5.x

In particular, if your amarok package comes from Packman, you should install libtag1 from Packman as well.
Use YaST's version tab to switch.

Background: Packman contains libtag1 1.9.1, but openSUSE only comes with 1.8.
Amarok compiled against 1.9.1 doesn't work with 1.8 and crashes on startup as you experienced.

Thankyou--this worked. I had amarok installed from Packman and libtag1 from OpenSuse. When I tried to change to the Packman libtag1, YasT demanded various other changes, but I was able to find a set it would accept, and now amarok opens properly.
