Hello All,

On the 17th, an upgrade of my Debian testing system resulted in
complaints from KDE (v4) that the Phonon backend failed to start, meaning
audible notifications don't happen, I just get a dialog box telling me
to report to distributor.

Packages upgraded were;

libvlc5 (1:2.1.5-dmo1) to 1:2.2.0~pre3-dmo1
libvlccore7 (1:2.1.5-dmo1) to 1:2.1.5-dmo2
vlc (1:2.1.5-dmo1) to 1:2.2.0~pre3-dmo1
vlc-data (1:2.1.5-dmo1) to 1:2.2.0~pre3-dmo1
vlc-nox (1:2.1.5-dmo1) to 1:2.2.0~pre3-dmo1
vlc-plugin-pulse (1:2.1.5-dmo1) to 1:2.2.0~pre3-dmo1

also, installed was;

libvlccore8 (1:2.2.0~pre3-dmo1)

In the mean time, I've installed the gstreamer backend which is
working. I'd rather use vlc, so am wondering if there's anything I can
do to sort things out?
