Since long, amarok dependencies were adding up. Bug 4682 was requesting a cleanup and moving all not essential deps to be make-dependencies. This has now be implemented. Together with now amarok being able to use collection database code modular, we are now happy that amarok-base-mysqlfree is now obsolete and was removed from the repositories. You should be asked by pacman to replace it by amarok-base. amarok-base is now having minimal dependencies. For additional features consider:
- visualisations: libvisual and libvisual-plugins
- advanced scripting in amarok needs python
- for MySQL collection db, install mysql and for postgreSQL, set up a database in postgresql
- for media deviice support, you need - depending on your device - libgpod, libifp, libnjb or libmtp.
