mysql 5.1 is out now, and soon to be released for Gentoo ~arch users.  The 
official mysql upstream upgrade documents talk about backing up the 
database, running a couple commands (repair-tables, basically) on it to do 
the upgrade, and going from there.

But there's a problem.  I haven't the foggiest where these databases are 
kept for kde/akonadi users -- it's obviously not a system database as I'm 
not starting a system service.  And I don't know much about running the 
upgrade -- will the upstream upgrade docs work as-is once I feed them the 
correct path, or is there something special I need to do -- make sure 
akonadi's not running or something, maybe?  Where's the KDE documentation 
on this?  Surely they have some if they're using the mysql software, as 
they are.

The official upgrade docs are available here:
