Re: Problems playing ogg-files

I can't play ogg-files from kde-applications anymore. This

I used to use the experimental packages/the ones from
http://pkg-kde.alioth.debian.org/kde-3.3.2 from which the
kdemultidia-packages are until now. (The 3.3.2 haven't hit
unstable yet, which I'm using, yes.)
From kde-file-dialogues, I can't even see the ogg-files
(e.g. from noatun, kaboodle); but I don't think it's an
arts-related problem, because I can play them with
artsplay. But: amarok complains about arts.
The libflac-issue should be solved, shouldn't it? By the
time it occured, I never had these problems.
That's what amarok says when I try to play an ogg-file:
amarok: [controller] Loading URL:
amarok: [aRts-Engine] Loading url:
amarok: aRts-Engine: url.path() == /data/mp3/Fleas and
Lice/Fleas and Lice - Recipes For Catastrophes/Fleas and
Lice - 01 - Harsh Realities.ogg
amarok: aRts-Engine: url.protocol() == file
amarok: aRts-Engine: url.host() ==
amarok: aRts-Engine: url.port() == 0
amarok: ERROR: [ArtsEngine::connectTimeout()] Cannot
initialize PlayObject! Skipping this track.
I had the same problem and was advised by the maintainer that new
packages are in the mill. In fact, a testing version was available at:
deb http://pkg-kde.alioth.debian.org/kde-3.3.2 ./
but, they may have been pulled already. If so, you'll just have to wait
a bit longer for those experimental versions to hit unstable/testing.
