Hi. Let me through in the packagers view about this. In fact there are some
* If we disable phonon within Qt and build the one from KDE instead we'll have
webkit without video/audio support and you cannot use qtconfig to configure
* If you choose to use Qt's phonon you have to fix the desktop/dbus files by
appliyng this patch: http://cvs.fedoraproject.org/viewvc/rpms/qt/devel/qt-
You also need to patch with the latest patches from the kde-qt repo to fix
issues with different header names.
On a sidenote: The bigger problem are still the different incompatible
backends. Qt does only provide the gstreamer backend and webkit only works
with that. On the other hand some apps like kaffeine only work with xine
backend. And because you cannot use different backends at the same time you
have to switch it in systemsettings everytime you want to use for example
Arora watching a video or kaffeine to watch TV. OK, I am going off topic here
