Compiling Amarok2 on FC9

I am sharing my experience on compiling amarok2 on fc9. As amarok wiki ( says you need to have the those dependecies and their devel packages installed in your system. Well installing mysql embedded is bit of a trouble since i couldn't find on fc9 repos. So what i did was i got it installed from fc10 update site.

name=Fedora 10 - i386 - Updates Newkey

In addtion you will need the following 2 rpms installed in your system qtscriptbindings-0.1.0-5.fc9.i386.rpm and qtscriptgenerator-0.1.0-5.fc9.i386.rpm. You can download those from the following urls which i found from (A great rpm search engine).

After that compile it as described in amarok wiki.

But sad say friends, as i felt it was not worthy of the time i spent on compiling amarok2 :(. Because i didnt like the inherited KDE4 theme looks and the missing equalizer :(. Any way this might help the people who still want to install amarok2 on fc9.
