sorry, made a mistake, installed libgpod not libpod0 lol
after loading a whole bunch of dependancies manually (ouch) , its installed.
there doesnt seem to be a 1.4.0 version of amarok-engine-arts or gstreamer
, the xine engine never works on my install, it always says "xine was unable to initialise any audio-drivers"!
doing a urpmi search gives a lot of possible packages and i dont know whuch one solves this problem.
arts engine worked fine in the amarok 1.3. never worried about why xine didnt till now
