Title: kontact / kmail does not start on newly installed system
Post by: bluelupo on 2012/06/15, 11:09:24
Hi all,
The programs are KMail and Kontact after a complete reinstallation of a siduction system (plus an initial dist-upgrade) is not usable. It lacks essential packages are not installed. For example, lack the "akonadi-backend-mysql" and the associated MySQL package. The Package "akonadi-backend-sqlite" is installed, but it does not work with Kontact / Kmail.

Verifies that I e.g. with command "akonadictl start", which generates many error messages.

It could certainly also be of advantage if the addition would be built "kdepim" package in the KDE ISO.

We have sqlite and akonadi-backend-sqlite preinstalled to avoid the full overhead of mysql-*. I could only guess at the moment, that a preconfig for sqlite is missing. Will look into it.

There is no difference to former releases concerning SQLite and akonadi. Please note that there is a bug in the graphical conf file (akonaditray). It is not possible to restore a valid configuration with SQLite once you set the options to default (Voreinstellungen). You will then have to edit ~/.config/akonadi/akonadiserverrc manually.

I have written bug report to insert a global configuration file for akonadi and SQLite, see #755 (http://chili.siduction.org/issues/755) and http://forum.siduction.org/index.php?msg=18776#18776 (http://forum.siduction.org/index.php?msg=18776#18776).

I tested to change the configuration with MySQL-Server into SQLite in Epidemic GNU/Linux (Debian testing based). Unfortunately it is only documented in Portuguese: Configuração leve do akonadi (http://www.epidemiclinux.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=1863).

I have here kontact and kmail working with SQLite (OneStepbeyond actualized)

Good luck!
