You may want to try mine:


Depending on your KDE/Qt version, I've other flavors as well, e.g. if 
you want to Qt 4.7.1, you should add the KDE:Distro:Factory repo (and 
you will get KDE 4.5.3 for free ;-) )..

All it took was adding the missing phonon{,-devel} dependencies, BTW.

If you use these packages, a short note would be nice (even for the 
successful case), thanks.
