Okay. Good to know. I thought about even migrating my 32-bit debian setup 
to 64-bit once I have a suitable laptop.[1]

I think you can safely recreate both of those. But the Nepomuk one only if 
you didn't add your own tags or other hand-made information.

But not this one.

Maybe you can dump it, if you install a 32 bit - I don't know if a 64 bit 
MySQL will work - MySQL server and put the directory


into /var/lib/mysql.

Maybe there is another command for dumping an MySQL embedded database. Did 
you use a search engine to find something like that?
