To answer your question, yes, I use KDE on vanilla Squeeze, so I have
Korganizer and Akonadi running. Akonadi is running happily, as is MySQL which
is what Akonadi uses to store the data it manages. I didn't have to do
anything special to achieve this, after system installation.
I don't actually use Korganizer (yet) to do anything, but it starts up
happily, and I happily shut it down again ;)

Your MySQL installation is borked. Possibly you had an untidy system shutdown
(crash, power outage), and a lockfile has really been left lying around, or a
spurious MySQL process is really still running somehow.
See also :
which dates from around when Squeeze was originally released, but which talks
of a MySQL bug causing your problem, but which was fixed in MySQL 5.1.46 .. but
current Squeeze MySQL is version 5.1.63.

I wouldn't try to run a mixed system unless you really know what you're doing.
Never FDISK after midnight
