Can you determine which Akonadi resource is crashing?

The control center was removed mainly because it contained the service 
internal configuration stuff like whether to use a system level MySQL server 
and people started to change this items without knowing what they were 
actually doing.

It can still be shown through kcmshell, IIRC like this
kcmshell4 kcm_akonadi

The second part of the module, the resource configuration is supposed to be 
handled by the respective applications, e.g. contact resources by 
I'd prefer to have this portion back, just like we have the KResource config 
in both apps and control center.

This is currently the best working option.
The first tab there should give you an overview of which agents are configured 
and what their respective status is.

Depending on your address book setup you'll probably only need the Personal 
Contacts resource.
