Try starting kaddressbook alone and select the addressbook to use. By
default, this appears to be an akonadi resource, which caused kaddressbook
to crash (likely because I had not configured it). Since I don't use
akonadi and likely won't until a year or two from now, and since I don't
have any addresses in this unused akonadi resource, there is no point in
having an akonadi address resource, so I deleted it.
Then, since all my addresses are in a traditional vcf file, I asked
kaddressbook to open a different addressbook, namely the real vcf
Once done, kaddressbook now started up without crashing. Since kmail and

Hi, Petrus. I don't think it's the same problem. However, I resolved to
a look.At this point I realised that I could no longer run any of the
applications stand-alone. I hunted for lock files, found an odd one and
removed it. No difference. Totally disabled selinux - no difference.
Feeling convinced that the problem was with kmail itself I decided to go with
my instincts and change the target for the akonadi resource for local mail.
Akonadi started up as though there had never been a problem. A few seconds
later I got a crash report from kontact. I asked it to re-start, and here it
is. So far, at least, everything is working. I guess akonadi had got its
knickers in a twist when it couldn't find that Local folder it was expecting.
If all remains well tomorrow I'll file a bug report.
