Re: KDE 4 simply broken
Thank you responding.
You're right (wrt the akonadi stuff) - it's something I got some
help with from Michael, et al, on this list a little while back.
I think cranking up another MySQL instance is not necessarily the
most optimum approach for an application to do - and it might in
fact be a distro / packaging issue. I respect that it's early days
on this one, though.

Okay, then I have the problem of /usr/lib/kde4/libexec/ not being
in my path. I see that there's a kdesu_stub (part of kdelibs4 & 5)
but that's not immediately helpful here of course.
Is that really in the PATH for kde4? If so, any ideas why it's not
for me and/or where would it normally be set, so I can track it
I symlinked kdesu into ~/bin/ a while ago, but that wasn't much
help either, but never returned to identify that problem.

Yes, I've heard nasty rumours about the Intel driver being a bit
dodgy, but I was using the same driver on xorg for the previous
six months. Consequently I think it'd be a bit disingenuous to
attribute my current, and quite chronic woes to a graphics driver
that worked just fine with KDE 3.5.x

I've already filed a bug with this, and had a bit of a yak with
the Debian developer, who seemed happy with my proposed solution
(he thought he'd already done it, as it happens) - quanta will work
fine in KDE4, it's just a (distribution-related) dependency problem.

I've gone from a fully functional, rock solid desktop environment
with 14+ day uptimes (not bad for a netbook), to now using what
is effectively beta-grade software for the six or so hours I now
get between system crashes.
We might have to agree to disagree on the scale of the bugs here.
