Fixing Akonadi after mysql package update on PCLinuxOS


After installing some updates to the mysql package, akonadi stopped working and therefore Kmail and Kontact in general would not work. So here's the fix:

Step 1

Edit the /home/your user name here/.local/share/akonadi/mysql.conf file;
(replace 'your user name here' with your actual user name)

Replace the following

Code:
# use InnoDB for transactions and better crash recovery
default_storage_engine=innodb
with

Code:
default_storage_engine=myisam
Step 2

Delete all files in the /home/your user name here/.local/share/akonadi/db_data/akonadi/ folder (once again replace 'your user name here' with your actual one)

Step 3

Open a terminal window and type (NOT as root/superuser):

Code:
akonadictl start
And you should get akonadi back!
