Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: amarok

As the title says amarok in Jaunty is indeed broken. First, there is no
option to install amarok 1. I believe in the direction of amarok 2 but
it is not anywhere near close enough to replace 1.XX.

A few issues:

I can't import my music list, mysql to new amarok style fails entirely.
Not one single song is imported correctly.

Most of the plugins we are all used to do not exist anymore in amarok 2.
Similar artists? A thing of the past. The wikipedia plugin for amarok 2
is sad, great it connects to wikipedia but it is no where near on par
with the old version.

Formats previously supported don't import,  I would at least expect this
but none of my flacs show up. Sure I can play them from the file area
but it doesn't find them in a scan (bug??).

I am confused as to why it was decided amarok2 is ready to replace
amarok1 when so many things are missing. We had 1.XX packages still
working fine lets keep those for now (or at the very least let people
install them!) until at the very least amarok 2 offers the same
