I'm trying to get Amarok 1.4 to use the MySQL database, and I think
I've messed things up. I'm using KDE 3.5.10 running on opensuse

Under MySQL Configuration, I've got

Hostname: localhost
Port: 3306
Database: amarok


1. What is the correct Username?
2. What is the correct password?

Do I need to make any magic incantations to the MySQL god (or
daemon)? I've setup mysqld to start at bootup.

I keep getting 'Access Denied' error messages, whatever I enter for
1 and 2 above.



install webmin. Use it to create the amarak user (if it's not root).
Use it to handle users and passwords in MySQL.

Thank you. Which repository would I find it in?

#zypper in webmin
Retrieving repository 'RPM' metadata [done]
Loading repository data...
Reading installed packages...
'webmin' not found.
Resolving package dependencies...
Nothing to do.



To the best of my knowledge it's not in any repo. Just surf to and fetch the RPM. Install, as root, with #rpm -Uvh

Then fire up your browser, goto http://localhost:10000


Well, that's really good app. I shall enjoy playing with it. Thanks
