Hi, mysql is on the same machine.

With sqlite I obseverd that obviously (no guarantee) when a single change is 
made, the whole database is written to hard disk. Then read again, next change 
made, completely written again. This take lot of time, since I organize my 
pictures in directories instead with tags, so I always shift a lot of files. 
Mysql seems to have a better chache strategy. Nevertheless there are problems 
with DK / mysql and the database user must be root.

Regards Volker
