Please, please, don't do this. In 4.4, kmail depends on mysql-server in order to send mail. (kmail -> Akonadi -> mysql-server). In 4.3, this is not true. From what I hear on upstream mailing lists, this won't be true in 4.5. Upstream is already aware and working on the issue, but it falls under "new feature" so it won't be included in the 4.4.x line. For me, KDE 4.4 is the most broken KDE release since 4.1 (I didn't try 4.0). I'd rather have 4.3.x in Squeeze than 4.4. Actually, I like most of KDE 4.4 and am currently using it for day-to-day work. I'm still using kmail/kontact/etc. (basically kdepim) from 4.3 since I have no desire to run yet another RDBMS on my system. (I already run PostgreSQL, and have a number of apps that use SQLite installed.) Please don't force an "Akonadi-enabled" PIM suite on stable users before they are provided with an Akonadi that can use something other than MySQL. -- Boyd Stephen Smith Jr. ,= ,-_-. =. email@example.com ((_/)o o(\_)) ICQ: 514984 YM/AIM: DaTwinkDaddy `-'(. .)`-' http://iguanasuicide.net/ \_/
