"Fortunately, I have built Amarok 1.4.10 for Fedora 11 -- and you can install it now.

"I've finished upgrading my workstation to Fedora 11 beta.

This time around, I decided to take Amarok 2 (specifically, 2.0.2) for a spin. So, I diligently backed up my KDE config and application data for Amarok 1, and nuked it from the original places.

"Before anybody accuses me of using a beta for this rant, bear in mind that the rest of the KDE 4 applications in this system are functioning correctly. Of course, if you want to skip the rant, click here for the solution."
