Upgrading from 11.0 to 11.2 amarok worked fine with amarok-yauap (which is
broken) and amarok-xine. Now upgraded to 11.2 and Amarok 2 but no audio or
even Yast2 2 can't find a version of yauap or xine.

Amarok2 uses phonon - so there's no need for yauap. You need phonon-backend-
xine or phonon-backend-gstreamer depending on which engine you prefer.

I hope you're testing with ogg files, cuz I don't think you can expect
factory
to be sporting mp3 support after Fluendo put a stop to that.

Is phonon intended to be the kde4 replacement for the likes of
pulseaudio, portaudio and jack?
I have not been able so far to see any effect of phonon and the
explanations I have seen so far have been glowing reports of what it can do.
Is is just a matter of apps being rewritten to use it?
