Hi Kevin, Hi Duncan,

thanks a lot for your comments and hints.

> Can you determine which Akonadi resource is crashing?

Yes. According to KDE-Crash Handler it is "akonadi_maildir_resource". Signal 6 
( aborted ). The box disappeares after I remove the "mail.dir" resorce in 

However I get a lot of "akonadi_maildir" activities shown by "system activity" 
and corresponding much akonadi resources shown in akonadi-console, until I 
rename "akonadi_maildir_resource" in /opt/kde4/bin.

Duncan's hint concerning "mysqld" :  I realised that I had two instances 
running, one beeing triggered by akonadi, the other one starting 
from the very beginning from /etc/rc3.d. I removed the last one, but nothing 
special happens. 

It should hovever become included in general instructions, not to start 
"mysql" from other applications, if this is crucial to akonadi.

KAddressbook is definitivly _not_ working at all. I can start KAddressBook, it 
offers me to add a new AddressBook, but it does nothing. But absolutely 
nothing. It seems, that KAddressbook is not ready in Kdepim-4.4.1.Could this 
be true, Kevin ?
