Ok, that might have been too confusing to start with that topic. So yes,
phonon 4.1 is incompatible to current kdebase and it will stay that way. And
Qt 4.5 should ship phonon 4.2 or later if at all possible.

I don't like a branches/.../trunk. Then I'd rather use trunk/phonon.
latest phonon-stable == branches/phonon/<max>, which is why I suggested an
svn:external. I neither want to merge from branches to kdesupport all the
time, nor do I want to move from kdesupport to branches whenever a new branch

compile and install phonon from kdesupport and it'll work. Or, preferred:
svn co $KDESVN/branches/phonon/4.2 phonon
and install that.
