For sqlite the procedure could be this:

1st) to be on the safe side, copy the digikam4.db thumbnails-digikam.db files
(thumbnails-digikam.db can easily be recreated but on a large collection it
take some time)

2nd) edit ~/.kde4/share/config/digikamrc, the section [Database Settings]
should contain only the following:
[Database Settings]
Database Connectoptions=
Database Hostname=
Database Name=/a/path/to/dir
Database Name Thumbnails=/a/path/to/dir
Database Password=
Database Port=0
Database Type=QSQLITE
Database Username=
Internal Database Server=false

no Image* or Thumbnails*, if these are present remove them
also check that values in there are correct.

3rd) N/A

4th) emerge -C =digikam-2.1.0-r1 && emerge -a '>=digikam-2.1.1'

Step 2) is not immediately needed but leaving the cruft there can create
problems if and when we switch to this schema of config options.
