thanks for your concern.
What I meant was that after a "complete removal" and then, after a reboot, a reinstallation of Amarok, it still was displaying that message about not finding a server for MySQL and I was still unable to set it to SQLite without crashing Amarok.
What I finally did was to completely remove Amarok and Amaro-xine (it unsintalled upon complete removal, of course). Then I went to Home and showed hidden files. In .kde/apps/ there was still an Amarok folder. I deleted it, reboot and reinstalled Amarok.
When I started it, it was again displaying that message about MySQL but I was able to set it to SQLite without crashin Amarok. I then rebuild my collection and now... its up and running Pink Floyd's Sorrow at full blast
Everything looks fine. I don't know if my method was a bit rude in anyway for the system (I'm new to Linux... and loving it), but it seems to work well.
thanks again !
