I did so.

Digikam works nicely:

I can start digikam, browse pictures and view movie files. No crash.

I am using the following packages:

I am uploading my (non chroot) 64 bit Digikam builds to for others to


Please consider removing the conflict to phonon-backend-vlc now that
neither Detlev nor Daniel nor me can reproduce the crash on start.

Dear Grey, please double check whether you have any deb-multimedia VLC
packages installed and check your VLC installation.

As to the references Andreas Tille posted:

- With the Amarok won´t start issue there were indeed deb-multimedia.org
packages involved:


- The second reference according to the reporter was with the original

Still given the mixed picture and three reports of no issues whatsoever I
kindly ask to remove the conflict so that the underlying bug can be fixed if
any still exists.

If need be I will ask around at debian-kde for others to test the Digikam
packages I uploaded with phonon-backend-vlc. Readers from debian-kde feel
free to test my package builds and report your results. (No warranties
whatsoever, these are just unclean non chroot builds which may carry more
dependencies than necessary.)
