No sound from Amarok
Use Configure Amarok to set the sound engine to GStreamer, and choose GStreamer's ALSA-plugin to get sound sent to openSUSE's default sound subsystem, ALSA.
Music collection doesn't show up in Amarok 2
Amarok 2 needs mysql installed in order for the collection to properly work. Install libmysqlclient-devel and mysql from software management. Version 5.0 works. Restart amarok and rescan collection.
Try using xine as the amarok engine.
