Back then I have talked about this NFS issue with KDE SIG at
#fedora-kde so many times that this cannot be the problem, since it
wouldn't have been pushed into production when it was tested with
NFS, right? :)
From what I can read on the web, Akonadi is supposed to work on NFS
days. If it doesn't work, it's either:
* some security framework blocking the access (I've found bug reports due to
AppArmor in my search). On Fedora, the only possible offender would be
SELinux. Please check for SELinux AVC denials in the logs and/or try
disabling SELinux. But I don't think that's the issue.
* your NFS server being broken and not supporting the required
functionality, in which case this is not a Fedora issue.
An easy workaround if you always use the same machine is to move
.local/share/akonadi to some local directory and symlink it from the NFS
