Now, I have MariaDB installed, but Akonadi, of course, is not working as it complains about a missing database driver ! So I went to rebuild qt4, with the addition  "-plugins-sql-mysql" in ./configure. To my astonishment, "make" crashes after more then 2 hours with a lot of complains about "»QWebPage« is not a Typ", "»WebAction« not declared" and so on. Cannot be true: I only add a plugin configuration, not rejected,  and the make process crashes ?

That sounds similar to the error I posted on -dev, but perhaps not

And no, I cannot help - I stopped trying to build kde4 at that
point.  Sorry.

In my case, I had the impression that the broken rebuild seemed to
have borked other parts of kde4 - hopefully, I was mistaken [ I've
been seeing too much weirdness and sudden breakage in the last few
days ].

In theory, akonadi can be told to use sqlite - but the suggestions I
found for how to do that never worked for me, and there seems to be
some variation in where the akonadiserverrc file lives between
different distributions.
