3. Must I run mysqld on my laptop for KAddressBook?
I'm presently running a MySQL server on my desktop.
Can I use this?
Yes, Akonadi can be set up to use a remote MySQL server. (The Akonadi server
itself, on the other hand, will always be local.) Just note that mysql-
server will still be dragged in by dependencies due to technical limitations
of the RPM dependency system, it just won't be running locally.
4. I have two different System Settings icons in my f-menu:
a) A System Settings icon at the top level (with Development, Education,
b) An entry at level 2 under Settings=>System Settings
Is this unusual?
Place a) is as part of the Favorites list, place b) is its location in the
menu. Other "favorites" are also handled this way.
That said, upstream doesn't show System Settings in the Applications menu at
all, but only in the Computer menu, and our current 4.5 RC2 packages now
only retain the entry in the Computer section (because the patch which
changed this got dropped). We need to decide whether we want to
rebase/rewrite the patch or stick with the upstream default.
