Same here. Amarok 1.4.6 with MySQL 5.0.37 (basic Slack12).
I rebuilt with --enable-mysql and got
= The following extra functionality will be included:
= + MySql Support
I removepkg'd the original package, and installpkg'd my new build. I also deleted my ~/.kde/share/apps/amarok directory and ~/.kde/share/config/amarokrc file. Now when I go to the Settings->Configure Amarok->Collection there is a new "Collection Database" item at the bottom, but when I pull down the list only SQLite is available.
Yes, I have done
create database amarok;
grant all on amarok.* to amarok@localhost identified by 'password';
I can't think what else I should do. Any suggestions welome.
