kmail quits with akonadi server self-test errors on slackware -current

I'm trying to run kmail on Slackware -Current. Kmail starts then akonadi server runs checks.
Then follow many errors:

MySQL server log contains errors
Akonadi control process not registered at D-Bus.
Akonadi server process not registered at D-Bus.
No resource agents found.
Previous Akonadi server error log found.

I've reinstalled MySQL and it seems to be working but there is this error repeatedly:

InnoDB: Unable to lock ./ibdata1, error: 11
InnoDB: Check that you do not already have another mysqld process
InnoDB: using the same InnoDB data or log files.

I've done some Google searches but I'm not able to find a solution to get akonadi to work.

Let me guess

You are trying to run Kmail as root ... Right ...

Well that's the error you are going to get when you run Kmail as root .

Of the topic Why would you want to run your Slackware box as root ?

Anyway , I got No fix for you but suggest creating a normal account with sudo rights and there you go no more errors

Actually I'm not running Slackware or Kmail as root but as a normal user.

Did you recently upgrade KDE?

While I can offer no suggestions, something very similar happened to me when I upgraded from KDE 4.4 to KDE 4.6. After trying to figure this out, I wimped out and downgraded KDE back to 4.4.

I am such a wuss.
