amarok freeze after crash


Hi to everyyone
I am using the amazing suse 10.1
MY problem is that whenever amarok crashes or whenever i should kill it next time amarok wont start.
What do u do in such cases? I am thinking that the problem may rely on other software/libraries that amarok uses. Any suggestions plz?

You SURE it wont start? it might be running in the background and you can't see it. I have had this happen many times. Try this: "ps ax" and look for amarokapp after you restart amarok.

Try moving the files in ~/.kde/share/apps/amarok out of the directory and see if this helps. Also go into the configuration of Amarok and in the General --> Playlist-Window Options uncheck the remember playlist on exit option it would always freeze on exit when using this option forcing me to kill -9 amarok_pid then tell me I had a corrupted playlist on start taking a long time starting up as well.

And what if it running to the background/?
For example i have exclty the same problem with kaffeine
Code:
akroneiro:/home/alaios # ps -aux | grep kaffeine
Warning: bad ps syntax, perhaps a bogus '-'? See http://procps.sf.net/faq.html
alaios    3632  0.0  0.0 140792   900 ?        D    12:08   0:01 kaffeine
root      9079  0.0  0.0   2756   696 pts/2    R+   14:19   0:00 grep kaffeine
akroneiro:/home/alaios # kill -9 3632
akroneiro:/home/alaios # ps -aux | grep kaffeine
Warning: bad ps syntax, perhaps a bogus '-'? See http://procps.sf.net/faq.html
alaios    3632  0.0  0.0 140792   900 ?        D    12:08   0:01 kaffeine
root      9087  0.0  0.0   2756   712 pts/2    S+   14:20   0:00 grep kaffeine
But still cant kill kaffeine programme. Same think with amarok.
Is it possible to take advantage of the process running in backround?
