Well, that depends on how you got KDE/Nepomuk installed. (self built  or what 

All soprano versions support sesame2 and make it default if it is avaible. But 
sesame2 needs Java and is quite hard to package correctly. That is why some 
distros do not ship it. 

KDE 4.2 will disable strigi when using the redland backend because it is 
unusable slow for that.
