Don't know if anyone else has seen this, but I was getting a message
saying that either the gstreamer or xine (or both, depending on what was
installed) backend couldn't be opened (these are the KDE phonon audio
layer implementations) at startup and when someone IMed me on Kopete.

Also, in the sound section (click on the speaker) of "System Settings" I
had the error message:

Also, the KDE GUI to start things as root (kdesu) didn't work - it never
opened the command.

Anyway, the solution is to force Yast to reload the kdebase4-runtime
package.  Somehow some of those libraries has been deleted.

That seems to fix everything!

I don't normally care about spelling errors here (usually, I hope, typing
mistakes), but.... ow....

This page seems to be getting hits for "KDE4.1 Opensuse".  If people are
coming here looking for advice on whether to try this out, I would give a
strong recommendation - it works well and looks great.

I should qualify that by saying that I am using the latest build from
these repositories (amongst others):
