Issues with opening KMail


Whenever I open KMail, it says "the akonadi personal information management service is not operational"

I have done some research and I was reading that I had to go to /root/.config/akonadi/ and edit akonadiserverrc. I changed the Driver=*whatever* to Driver=QMYSQL. I then typed akonadictl start in Terminal and this is what I got below:


Code:

Tell me what to do to get this thing back up and running!

Thanks a lot!

One reason I don't use Kmail (or KDE) is because Akonadi is annoying.

Have you followed the advice in the error message:

Code:
stderr: "130608 11:50:14 [ERROR] Fatal error: Please read "Security" section of the manual to find out how to run mysqld as root!

I have but unfortunately the manual said nothing about running Akonadi as root....Especially in the Security Section!
