I think PostgreSQL gets installed as a dependency with Debian. I have made it work with MySQL but it requires more work. The easiest way may be to install PostgreSQL and then see if Amarok will configure the database on its own.

All I know at this point is that the pictures, videos and music that were in my home folders got transmogrified after installing MySQL and restarting.

Pictures are thumbnail quality; e.g., reduced from 68.5 KB (original per d/l file) to 5.1 KB (per "properties").

I'm trying to restore what I can from a backup disk.

I mentioned that PostgrepSQL was not installed in post #14:

I see the amarok setup suggests installing a d/b server such as MySQL or PostgreSQL. These aren't installed on my ETCH distro.
I'm not sure what you want me to understand about it.

I can see my Initial Question has been answered and that I'm spinning off in an entirely different area; (i.e., MySql installation and administration) which might be better pursued in a different thread or a different forum and after I've done some reading to get my bearings.

Thank you very much for your help.
