I have just installed Digikam 2:2.1.1-0ubuntu1 in Kubuntu 11.10. All the photos from Digikam on my Gentoo system are on a network drive now. They used to be on a USB drive.
When I started 2.1.1 the first time I got the configuration window. When I clicked 'Finish', Digikam died with no message. If I type digikam in a terminal window, I get
QSqlDatabasePrivate::removeDatabase: connection 'ConnectionTest' is still in use, all queries will cease to work.
I rebooted and tried again, but got the same result.
The last session on the superseded Gentoo system finished normally.
How do I get Digikam working on a network drive?
