Package: akonadi-server
Version: 1.3.1-3+b1

I'm running Debian on my netbook, it has 512 mb ram, so every mb is valuable. I can live w/o akonadi features (i don't use them), but it is running in the system anyways, taking up to 80 megs of ram (running mysql server on a netbook is a bit too aggressive i think).

Issuing 'apt-get purge  akonadi-server' will try to uninstall the following packages:
  akonadi-server* gdebi-kde* kchart* kde-plasma-desktop* kdebase* kdebase-workspace* kdebase-workspace-bin* kdepim-kresources* kdepim-runtime* kdeplasma-addons* kipi-plugins*
  kmail* knotes* koffice-libs* kopete* korganizer* krita* libkdepim4* libkopete4* libmessagelist4* plasma-dataengines-workspace* plasma-desktop* plasma-widgets-addons*
  plasma-widgets-workspace* python-kde4* system-config-printer-kde*

the following packages:
 kde-plasma-desktop* kdebase* kdebase-workspace* kdebase-workspace-bin*  plasma-desktop python-kde4
should be usable w/o akonadi running.

i was able to remove all akonadi-related packages (except for libraries) in opensuse 10.4, and after that i got latest KDE (4.6) running w/o akonadi (i used 'top' commandline tool to check this), so I believe this is possible for debian too.
akonadi-server should be installed with some big metapackage like kde, but the above mentioned packages should be installable w/o akonadi

Hello! apt-rdepends can give us some answers here.

If you run 

apt-rdepends --reverse akonadi-server | less

you will see that kdepim-runtime and kpilot depend on it. Perhaps it would be 
simpler with [0].

So the most probable thing is that you installed a meta package like kde-
standard or kde-full. If that's the case, you automatically installed kmail 
and friends, and so installing it's dependencies... falling into akonadi-

If you want to do an install without akonadi-server, in first place avoid 
installing kde with metapckages, and then install whatever is necessary for 
your setup, excluding packages that depend on kdepim-runtime [1] and do not 
install kpilot.

So, this is possible in Debian, but not using metapackages.

I am therefore closing this bug, as it's just a matter of installing things 
"nitpicking" packages. Feel free to reopen it if you find a packaging bug.

Kinds regards, Lisandro.

[0] Just for being more "graphicall", you can get a nice chart with:

apt-rdepends --reverse --dotty akonadi-server | dot -Tpng -Gsize="100,100"> 

[1] apt-rdepends kdepim-runtime will give you a hand on that.
