I just stated that ranting is usually not effective. By ranting you might
piss off the people who know most about your problem. E.g. people who like
the software and have been using it for years and, thereby solved many
common problems. Or the packagers investing endless hours to integrate and
maintain KDE in openSUSE. And last but not least the developers of the

Personally, I do not get paid for this and, thus, I have better things to
do with my time than trying to help people

So this you bring it.... as an argument to closed source software or an
argument why people (as I think) should be paid for their work (see openssl-
project events, which was I guess what happens if everybody leaches instead
of paying people).

I'm sorry that you misunderstood me. I simply think that ranting is a very bad
idea when asking for help.
Posting your problems and pointing out how long they were ignored in a
*separate* thread might have been okay. But keep in mind that the people who
do the work in their spare time may already know these problems but simply
don't have enough time to solve them all and no one helps.

Personally I think that the first post wasn't a rant "at all".

No one claimed it was.

who start criticizing the software

in general instead of giving specific information.

This is what I asked for when I said "where to report". As (a part from the
111 error akonadi refuses to start, and after any repair attempt this got
even worse, you may first of all indicate me what info you do need and how
I can raise it. Then I will provide.


I was not aware of the fact that your problem started directly after the
migration or that there was any migration at all.

Well I wrote: "I had several anomalies with my post account in one specific
Now having reinstalled completely the system by holding stable the /home in
the user caring for the main part of postal actions, the start of akonadi
also via akonadictl does fail. "
Maybe you should polish my communication skills? What should I have written
instead of "having reinstalled completely the system by holding stable the /

Why did you reinstall your system? If because of the anomalies, what anomalies
did you have exactly? Did you do an upgrade by reinstalling?

Oh, "after a new install in the title": as PIM is migrated only "by force"
with a new system install, but not by upgrade (as you should know and as it
was pointed out "kindly" in bugzilla, when in the past I did report a bug on
version 4 "won'tfix - not supported")

No, I do not know. Sorry if I don't follow your bug reports. Could you please
post a link? doesn't end
with such a conclusion.

when I write: a new install, then I
probably should have been more verbose. I really apologize.
And I really think it could be useful as all users that came from 13.2 to
42.1 to 42.2 via upgrade, not new install as of above, will get upgraded by
force when going from 42.2 to 42.3. Before they will have just used PIM4
without knowing it. So their experience with your new software would
greatly improve in case the process will run smooth. Which was and is the
reason why (although not payed for it) I do report bugs, try to favor
useful information and last but not least, I am using since 2003 only and
exclusively OSS where ever this is not forced upon me by a state
"authority" or an employer.

You could have told us that you effectively upgraded to PIM 5.

So please feel free to tell what you do need and be patient and tell me
"how" to raise the info. That we have "paste", well that I know it.


P.S. to close the issue - I shall be noted that I have the deepest respect
for you people. However, respect is, surprisingly "not unilateral".
There are many translations available and listed in the Tramslations section
but sadly not an Italian one.

Expert advice is a great comfort, even when it's wrong.
