I see occasional crash reports for kded4 (seg fault). This is a recent
fresh install of F12 on new system. Seems to run OK otherwise and passes
Here is what I am running right now:
$ rpm -q qt kdelibs
After pressing "restart app" on crash dialog:
ps ax | grep kded
2800 ? S 0:00 kded4 --nocrashhandler
I am also using "Fedora 12 Updates/Test Updates" and "kde-testing" repos
right now. Does this sound OK?
First kontact would not start at all. This seems to be due to the fact that
it was seeking a non-existent folder, /home/anne/.local/share/Local, IIRC.
Pointing this to my local mail directory allowed Kontact to start, but I've
since been told that that is a bad idea - and I haven't been told what I
should do about it.
Then I discovered that my addressbook was empty. I replaced the file from a
backup, restarted everything, but still couldn't see any addresses. Exploring
the Akonadi setup I confirmed that it was pointing to the correct file. In
the end I added a new Resource, pointing it to the same file. All my
addresses were now visible and I thought I had won. Not so. Today I needed
to add a phone number. Edit opened a blank form - none of the existing
details showing. You could type into a field, but saving it made no
difference. The new item didn't show. Now, some hours later, Edit is working
and I can add the phone number.
During that time I have kept getting spells of seeing Kontact use more than
50% CPU, forcing the total to 99-100%, so that I had to shut it down. Several
times. I can only assume that it's Akonadi trying to organise the data, but
it has simply made it unusable. Unless these issues can be resolved there are
going to be some major screams.

New to KDE Software? - get help from http://userbase.kde.org
I haven't been able to get updates for my F11 netbook for the last few days.
I'm seeing lots of lines like
kdepimlibs-4.3.4-1.fc11.i586 from installed has depsolving problems
--> Unresolvable requirement kdelibs4 >= 4.3.4 for
6:kdemultimedia-4.3.4-1.fc11.i586 from installed has depsolving problems
--> Unresolvable requirement kdelibs4 >= 4.3.4 for
I've run the suggested tools, cleaned metadata etc., to no avail. Is there
actually a problem, or is it pebcak?

Just found a cool new feature? Add it to UserBase
I've a system that's updated with kde-redhat, kde-unstable and
kde-testing repos enabled.
I'm unable to change the system date & time (when logged in as a
The "Date & Time" item in system settings displays the date & time with
a warning that "You are not allowed to save the configuration". After
changing the date or time setting, the 'Apply' button becomes active and
clicking it seems to change the values. But when the configuration item
is closed, it again asks to apply changes and when I choose to do so, I
get an error message: " Unable to authenticate/execute the action: 4, "
It used to work in the older version where I'd be offered to enter the
root password to apply the changes. Anything to do with PolicyKit/polkit?
Assuming I were to take the time to tag some files and folders, as well as rate them
(the stars) and/or even have comments for these items...
Is there a way to back this information up so that it can be restored upon upgrade to
rawhide/F13 or to a potential reinstallation of F12 or even to a different distro
(were I inclined to want to peruse)?
F12 fully uodated, including KDE 4.3.4.
Sound from mplayer, Flash video etc. all works, but Amarok doesn't. In
fact if I play a track the cursor doesn't even advance. The Settings
dialogue hasn't been touched since installation. The Sound Config button
(which just calls the System Settings panel) works, including the Test
button. Sound is configured for PA. The backend is Xine.
The console shows a bunch of "QPainter::begin: Cannot paint on a null
pixmap" messages, if that matters.
I think this is related to the "kded4" crashing but not sure how. When I
try to use KPackageKit to find a package under "Software Management" it
now hangs with the message at bottom "waiting on other tesks". If I do a
yum install it also hangs after printing "Loaded plugins: presto,
refresh-packagekit" and can only exit it with kill -9. I think maybe if
kpkgkit waits long enough that kded4 finally crashes. So this may be
what others see too. But yum hanging was not reported I don't think and
I wasn't seeing it earlier.
I have tried log off/on, restart X, power off/on and nothing helps.
Network connection still good.
There's still small problems:
Skip-broken could not solve problems
Error: Missing Dependency: PyKDE4 >= 4.3.85 is needed by package
Error: Missing Dependency: libknotificationitem-1.so.1()(64bit) is
needed by package 1:knetworkmanager-0.9-0.3.20090930svn.fc11.x86_64
I think i can delete knetworkmanager since i dont use it. But PyKDE4
would be nice to have. I guess there's some build problems with it?
Dubium sapientiae initium
My first batch of kde-4.3.85 builds for f11, will be pushed to kde-unstable
One known problem is that kdebindings-4.3.85 fails to build currently, so
that's missing right now. :(
