Just wanted to share this with the community. I've changed the configuration
of Akonadi to use PostgreSQL (Kmenu --> System Settings --> Advanced -->
Akonadi Configuration --> Akonadi Server Configuration)
I created a separate postgres instance (cluster) for Akonadi. Created a db
user 'akonadiuser' and created a db 'akonadi'. I set this up on a non-
standard port (5477) and I added this to /etc/rc.local:
su - postgres -c '/stage/akonadidb/start_akonadidb.sh'
The/stage/akonadidb/start_akonadidb.sh script looks like this:
$ cat /stage/akonadidb/start_akonadidb.sh
/stage/pgsql/8.4.2/bin/pg_ctl -D /stage/akonadidb start
At this point all the akonadi issues seem to have gone away...
Hopefully this is useful to others.
