    Yesterday I installed Amarok on a machine, but now with gstreamer as a beckend; a first for me. xine has been dropped and vlc doesn't support an equalizer.

    gstreamer works excellent.

    Amarok 2.7.0 hit Arch core.
    Business as usual - I always faced bigger issues with the 2.x.'0' releases.
    Usually it's crashing during scanning my collection on the NFS share.
    This time it just crashes during playback for whatever reason. :/

    Sure VLC supports an equalizer. Maybe the Phonon wrapper for VLC does not but VLC itself does (same with Audio CD playback).

    No clue about what you mean. The only thing that uses KWallet is custom addons, like the Last.fm scrobbler. But even that asks for the password only once...

    Depending how he configured KWallet. If he set it up in a way that KWallet closes immediately then it obviously opens again when username and password have to be send again to the serverů
