amarok having no sound

now this question has been answered over times but the thing is that they are all for suse distro.

i have fedora 10 installed and the problem did arise recently after downloading and installig kdebase-workspace. i have all my players (viz., vlc, rhythmbox) running with no difficulties at all. but when it comes to amarok, it seems that the player is playing but soundless... the slider over the seek bar moves as usual but produce no sound affect.

another major problem is that i have both gstreamer-phonon-backend and xine engine installed. but when i open the sound settings it only shows the gstreamer engine and no trace of xine is present.

i really could not make it out.........

please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!
