Note : with current implementation from svn (digiKam 1.3.0), you can
use Mysql database now instead SQLite, and especially a remote server

> Hi Redi,
>>) Hello, have just become a Linux user (UbuntuStudio 8.04) and my passion is
>>) photography and graphics.
>>) I have an archive of approximately 230,000 photographs and I will manage.
>>) Digikam I have identified as the best program to do this.
>>) After reading the FAQ on your site without finding a clear answer to my
>>) problem, I ask myself the question directly:
>>) I want to put photos on a server (which will be backed up) and then see them
>>) and maintained by another computer (mainly from my notebook). Important is the
>>) aspect of being able to search the entire archive and it can also manage the
>>) notebook even if not connected to the server (ie offline).
>>) This is possible with digikam? How? Which version?
> Yes, you can. You can put your entire collection on an network volume and
> access it via NFS or Samba.
> In Digikam  you just put you collection under the Settings -> Configure
> Digikam -> Connection on Network Shares. I'm using digikam compiled from source,
> but as far as I can remember, since version 1.0.0 you can use this option.
> Beware that your bottleneck will be your network, so you'll probably have a low
> startup of a big album.
> Cheers,
