Can't get MySQL support in amaroK
I'm using Fedore Core 4 x86_64. I'm trying to get amaroK to use MySQL instead of SQLite for the collection database (I want to use the amaroK web front-end, which needs MySQL collection).

I'm using the following configure command line:
./configure --enable-mysql --with-qt-libraries=/usr/lib64/qt-3.3/lib

My output from configure ends with the following summary:

 ===  amaroK - PLUGINS  ========================================================
 = The following extra functionality will be included:
 =  + aRts-engine
 =  + GStreamer-engine
 =  + xine-engine
 =  + MySql support
 =  + Konqueror Sidebar

Good - your configure finished. Start make now

So I then call make. Change to root, and then do make install.

My problem is when I start amaroK and goto the Collection configuration options, MySQL won't even show up in the combo box. I can't choose anything but SQLite.

Can anyone help me out. Other than that, everything seems to work fine for it.

without wanting to be flippant, maybe you have two versions of amarok installed? I can imagine that if you used a package manager before the binary ended up in /usr/bin and your compiled version in /usr/local/bin? (stupid suggestion, I know)

Other than that, isn't it easier to add the freshrpms and atrpms repos to yum and install it that way? Because I know mysql support works fine in those binaries.

And my final thought, maybe you ran Amarok before (with only sqlite support) and some stupid setting is being remembered? I dunno if amarok stores settings globally but try running the newly compiled version from a different user account?
