Add the key for the PPA by pasting the following into the terminal:
Now update your sources, remove Amarok2 and install Amarok1.4(Paste one line at a time into the terminal):
sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com \
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get remove amarok
Xine error fix: Settings>Configure Amarok>Output Plugin(drop down menu)>Alsa
sudo apt-get install amarok14

Enjoy Amarok as it should have(in my opinion)remained!!
This is working for me as I type on Jaunty x64. and also Jaunty x32 on a secondary machine.
Respect to the original poster/hoster of the sources, I have no idea where on the net I got them from now but they still work (I just used them now) so gratz.
