Akonadi woes

#1 Postby arjaybe » Wed Jun 06, 2012 6:29 pm

I'm running M11, recently installed, fully upgraded with community repos, using the liquorix 2.6.39 kernel (rq for USB3 ports) and KDE4.5.1. I can't use kmail because Akonadi throws up an error. See attached image. Closing the error closes kmail.

I've tried the troubleshooting link and googled parts of the error message. The closest I felt to a solution was talk of missing resource agents, but nothing I tried works.

Has anyone seen this? Alternatively, is there an easy way to upgrade KDE? That might fix it.

Easier to enable the debian backports repository and Reload. There you can find 3.2 kernels.

# debian backports repository
deb http://backports.debian.org/debian-backports/ squeeze-backports main

There have always been a few reports of problems with some liquorix kernels. If liquorix give problems just install another kernel (I'd remove the old liquorix kernel first so I could use the existing menu.list)

Don't forget if using a proprietary video driver you will need to reinstall it for the new kernel.

Thanks. I'll start by replacing the kernel.

We have KDE 4.6.5 and 4.7.4 in a special kde community repo, but Debian still had the old 4.4 kmail at that time. There is an upgraded libakonadi along with the new KDEs in there, though.

Maybe I should try one of those, since it's akonadi that's the problem. Is it just a matter of enabling the repo and upgrading?

I think the directions have been stickied.

I used Tim's method for 4.7.4 (Thanks Tim.) Had to run aptitude twice to complete the upgrade, and I'm in business. More or less. I have a functioning desktop but kmail still errors out on akonadi. It seems all that PIM stuff is still back at 4.4, so maybe it will sort itself out eventually.

Oh, well, I had a bit of fun and now I have KDE 4.7.-)

edit: Belay that! I went into systemsettings/personal information and managed to add a couple of resources and now kmail works as expected. I think I'll mark this solved.
