I made my comment because I tried removing akonadi once, because nothing that it indexes matters to me. The updates kept trying to put it back.

I finally decided to just pretend that it doesn't exist, since I don't use the KDE desktop nor any of the applications the akonadi indexes for (though I use a lot of KDE applications). (Akonadi and the constant nagging from kwallet are the reaons I don't use Kmail, though it's a perfectly adequate mail client.)

Your reasons are probably similar to mine. I use very few KDE programs, Mahjongg for the Wifey is about it.

It's all Good!

Thanks to both of you.

If calligra was blacklisted before you tried to run the slackpkg commands to install and remove it, then that is why it failed.

No point to change the mirror. As ruario said, this was all due to the fact you had calligra blacklisted, so slackpkg was ignoring it. Btw if you don't use slackpkg install-new, I don't see the point having it blacklisted. Anyway, I'm glad you got this sorted out ;-)
