            Bug ID: 322646
           Summary: wish: sqlite for local content, mysql for remote
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: digikam
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: Database
          Assignee: digikam-devel at kde.org
          Reporter: matteo.fortini at gmail.com

I chose digiKam for managing my quite large collection of photos. The photos
reside partly on my NAS, partly on my laptop HDD (when I first download them,
when I take them around). Since I have more than one users accessing the
photos, using only a local sqlite db is ruled out. Mysql would be the answer,
but digiKam would refuse to start unless it can contact mysql.

I wish digiKam would handle local/remote content differently, keeping  info on
local content in sqlite, so it can work offline, and info on remote content in

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. keep collection partly local, partly remote
2. disconnect from the network
3. try to use digikam
Actual Results:  
digikam gives error and can't use local collections

Expected Results:  
use sqlite for local collections
