Hey frealgagu, I see that you updated the PKGBUILD to the next, pre-alpha version of amarok. I had some issues when the official repos updated it to this version too [a]. Basically, I'm not sure that this is the best idea, because several things are broken in this version. It's not the stable version, so perhaps this should be left for amarok-git. However, I get that the stable version is difficult to build because of it needs qca-qt4 to make, so I'm partially divided. Is there an easy way to build the current stable version instead?

A lot of dependencies (qt4) were removed from official repositories and amarok need them to compile successfully. I'm currently without access to a computer, so I hope returns in a week to fix the package.

The last git commits of the project uses qt5 so I guess amarok will release one soon.

Package amarok is in official repo

I don't think so? It got removed from the official repos.

This from AUR cannot be build

Agreed, but I don't think it should be renamed on that basis.

This package should be rename to amarok-old, amarok2 or something like this. Package amarok is in official repo and in AUR. This from AUR cannot be build because of missing dependency in repos and in AUR.

Thanks for picking this up @frealgagu. You probably already know, but this package depends on qtscriptgenerator, which is missing in the repos/AUR, but also kdebase-runtime > kdelibs > polkit-qt4, which is also missing.

==EDIT== Eep, I just realised this also needs qca-qt4 as makedepends. This conflicts with qca, which is required by a whole bunch of kde things.
