My Amarok wont do as I want it to. When I start amarok, it displays the splash screen, then comes up with the main window and closes without any further notification. When I remove the .kde/share/apps/amarok folder and the .kde/config/amarokrc file, amarok starts, displays the first time wizard and after completing it crashes again in the same manner.
I'm not that much into debugging, but I tried using gdb against amarokapp and ended up with
~$ gdb amarokapp

I am using Debian Lenny, 2.6.25-2-686 #1 SMP i686, amarok is at 1.4.10-1, kde at 3.5.9, the kdebase-runtime at 4.1.0-2.
I tried reconfiguring amarok, the amarok-engines, libpulse0 (since the debugger fuzzed about it), with no luck.
There is a similar thread here
, but since this problem was solved by removing amarokrc and the thread now is about recovering the covers I decided to start it anew.
Further googling didn't help much, but maybe I didn't digg hard enough.
Any help is appreciated
