amarok2 playlist import

Hello, I started trying all the new kde4 apps on opensuse 11.1 and I'm experiencing some trouble with amarok2... I tried importing amarok 1.4 playlists using the sqlite driver, and I got a failure along with the message
"Driver not loaded Driver not loaded"
displayed on the GUI, while the standard output says "QSqlDatabase: QSQLITE driver not loaded".
I use the package kde4-amarok-2.0-3.2 from the openSUSE Build Service... I couldn't find whether I should install some rpm providing the qsqlite driver... anyone has some suggestion?

Thanks in advance

I don't know about importing playlists but right now, Amarok2 needs mysql and mysql-client to build your collection from your music files.

This is a known bug.

Thank you... I was also not able to create a new collection from scratch, and after having installed the two packages I suggest now I am. However, this did not solve the import problem, but it is a step forward and I argue that amarok can't make use of sqlite at all... so I could try moving amarok1.4 to mysql and then importing the newly generated mysql db, but I think I'll quit and continue with amarok1.4 for some time...


amarok2, kde4
