amarok 2.4.3
kde 4.7.4

amarok will regularly freeze up. icon in lower right of kde stays there, a left click does nothing and a right click has about a 20 second delay before the options finally come up. clicking close does not result in any behavior.

typing 'sudo killall amarok' yields no result no matter how many times i enter it.

I like kill programs with the htop. Try, you'll like too.

Here amarok is rendered completely unusable since 2.4.90. The whole program freezes badly.
Killall -9 "works". So far I tried everything, even went so far and started with a new kde user profile and also amarok's profile. Doesn't work. In the kde forums I also found no help. I got used to clementine now, which can be set up to work quite as amarok does.

Yes, my issue is also still present with 4.8 and amarok-2.5.0.
Not sure if it is the same problem as yours, here is the link to the KDE forum:

turns out this is a problem with the gamin server, take a look at this bug report and please upvote it if it solves the issue, this is still present here with kde 4.8.3 and amarok 2.5.0-r2
