Hi, I'm afraid your approach was not good. If you want to have a good KDE that plays together, and working Kmail, youl should upgrade to 11.4, with KDE 4.6 - this is the best KDE so far imho. Your problems stem from unresolved deps or old libs maybe, don't blame KMail for that, it's almost perfect (no M$ Exchange support yet :( )

I assume the mysql dependency would be for an embedded version for the search engine dependency and not actually used as storage for your email.

wtf. Why should a mail client require MySQL? Nutso, just plain nuts.

TC, exactly. And the headaches of the "database" being used for the Kmail addressbook, losing data, just getting plain lost, have been frightening.

I think that may be the biggest reason I've gone the Trinity-DE route: Of all the functions that have been rock-solid stable for DECADES, it's the email client address book.

And somehow, for some reason, KDE4 has messed that up.

In the immortal words of Chandler Bing, "Why-wh-wh-why-why-WHY???"
