That's your problem, noone ran into this before ;-) At least not that I know

I guess that's because debug messages are switched off. They would be useful 
though. Try if you can switch on 50003 with kdebugdialog. Not sure if they are 
removed on compile time though.

Please check the digikamrc file digikam is accessing. There should be an Album 
Path entry. And it should be the same file you used with digikam 0.9 before - 
or did you enter the location in the dialog appearing on first run?
