Failures on updating KDE to 4.4.1 - unable to update kmail

Hi,
I have been trying for days to get my kde system working again properly.
kmail hasn't been updated yet because kdepim-runtime-4.4.1 fails with the
following error:-

I have installed and re-installed kdebase/nepomuk-4.4.1 but it seems that

FWIW, I've not upgraded for a couple weeks now, as I've been doing other
things. So I've not yet done the 4.4.1 upgrade myself yet. If someone
else hasn't helped you fix the issue by the time I do, I'll see what
happens when I try, and answer again then.

Thanks Duncan, I hope you do not have problems but can still help me.
Just a few other observations:
1, I removed all of kdepim from my system, removed from world etc but if I
tried to upgrade kmail it draged in kdepin-runtime. I just can't see why
kmail should be dependent on kdepim-runtime.
2, Tied in with this might be the problems I had with amarok not working
when mysql was updated. I have masked the mysql update and reverted to
dev-db/mysql-5.0.90-r2, virtual/mysql-5.0, dev-perl/DBD-mysql-4.01.3,
dev-java/jdbc-mysql-5.1.11

I might be leading you up the garden path with this.
I look forward to hearing how your upgrade went,
regards
Paul

> Thanks Duncan, I hope you do not have problems but can still help me.

FWIW, I'm upgrading in the background right now. I'm doing it twice,
~amd64 on my main machine, and ~x86 on the image (on my main machine, but)
for my netbook, some 270+ packages on each, including the non-kde ones (I
don't run a full kde or it'd be more).

FWIW, there were some issues with mysql reported, tho they /should/ be
fixed with the latest versions of everything. That would affect akonadi/
kaddressbook/kmail, which I run, and amarok, which I dumped due to
developers more interested in more features I didn't want (after removing
several I used) than in the fact that they were breaking it for the amd64
segment of their userbase, back when they switched to mysql-embedded.

IMO, you'll be better off choosing a simpler music player, unless of
course you actually /use/ all that database functionality, scoring,
wikipedia artist lookup, etc, and value it above having a player that
actually /works/ for playing /music/. After a bit of research, I went
with mpd and a few chosen front-ends, in part so I could have
uninterrupted play when I wasn't running X and when I was, but there's all
sorts of players for all sorts of styles. And unless your style exactly
matches the amarok one, it's very likely simply way too many complex
dependencies to be worth running it. But if amarok's your style, by all
means, continue to use it! It's just not mine and even when I was running
it back in kde3, I found it rather bloated for my tastes. But the switch
to mysql-embedded was the last straw for me, so I switched, and am very
glad I did. =:^)

More on the rest when I'm done with the upgrade...

Just restarted kde after a successful upgrade, so it worked here. =:^)

And the mysql upgrade must have gone fine as well; the kaddressbook
database came thru it just fine, AFAICT.

So you know it /should/ work, but why it's not, for you...

I'll try to investigate that a bit more later. Just posting a quick
"working here" report ATM.

Thanks for the info Duncan,
I have just un-installed amarok and am starting to upgrade world including
mysql etc.
When I get the system working correctly I will then look for a replacement
to amarok.
Will let you know what happens.

One additional thing I should mention. For me it's routine so sometimes I
forget that it may not be that way for everyone.

The scriptlets I normally use to upgrade all use -NuD, so an update is
always a FULL update, all the way thru the dependencies (deep), and
updating any packages with changed USE flags as well. Personally, I don't
have much use for half-way updates, as I believe they'll cause me more
pain than the time they'll save.

Similarly, I always finish with a scriptlet that runs lafilefixer
--justfixit, and then revdep-rebuild $* -- -a1. (Actually, it's slightly
more complicated than that, as I source a config file that sets a parallel
jobs environmental variable, and add that variable to the revdep-rebuild
command line as well, so it takes advantage of portage's parallel emerge
features where it can.) Of course, Between lafilefixer and the fact that
I run as-needed in my LDFLAGS, my revdep-rebuild load is far lower than it
would be otherwise, which helps. =:^)

Then another scriptlet runs emerge --ask --depclean, and if it cleaned
anything major, I run the rebuild scriptlet again just to double-check
that the removals didn't leave any hanging needed rebuilds.

Of course, another scriptlet takes care of the etc-updates.

So when I'm done, not only are all dependencies deep updated along with
all packages with new USE flags, but I've ensured all stale linkages are
fixed and removed all the old no longer depended packages as well,
rerunning the stale linkages check after the cruft removal.

I also take care to read all the elogged messages (or at least skim them,
as most are repeats I'm familiar with by now) and do all the config
updates.

I'm unsure how many problems such a thoroughly proactive update regime
saves me, but I'm sure it's non-zero. If you're not regularly running
revdep-rebuild after updates, try it, with --ask or --pretend first, as
you may have quite a few rebuilds built up the first time you run it. The
--newuse and --deep emerge flags are mostly me being extra cautious (plus
I just like being updated thru and thru), as in theory they shouldn't be
needed. But it shouldn't need stated that theory doesn't always match
reality. And if you're not running emerge --depclean routinely, do be
extremely careful the first few times you run it, absolutely run it with
--pretend the first time, and go thru its list looking for stuff you want
to keep and add it to your world file (emerge --select --noreplace),
before running --depclean for real. Removing that cruft does help because
sometimes packages get mixed up and link to the old versions, if they're
still around. Plus, there's potential security vulns to think about,
since they're no longer in the dependency tree portage checks for updates.

Using such a program, you should proactively avoid many problems, and then
you'll be the one shrugging your shoulders and saying "it works for me."
=:^) Of course it won't fix them all, but the ones that are left are much
more likely to have real bugs associated with them, not the fuzzy bugs
associated with a system not kept in peak running order.

(Also keep in mind that perl-cleaner and python-updater are the parallel
to revdep-rebuild in their respective language domains. But unless you're
doing python/perl development or scripting on your own, it's unlikely
you'll need them as often as revdep-rebuild, as the number of apps using
them isn't as high, and the usage isn't as "system-core", as C/C++.)

Re: Re: Failures on updating KDE to 4.4.1 - unable to update kmail [In reply to]

Hi again,
Well my system seems to be working now all accept nepomuk which is
installed but the following programs can't find it !!!!

[ebuild R ] kde-base/kde-meta-4.4.1 USE="nls semantic-desktop*
-accessibility (-aqua) (-kdeprefix)" 0 kB
[ebuild N ] kde-base/kdepim-meta-4.4.1 USE="semantic-desktop (-aqua)
(-kdeprefix)" 0 kB
[ebuild N ] kde-base/kaddressbook-4.4.1 USE="handbook kontact
(-aqua) -debug (-kdeenablefinal) (-kdeprefix)" 0 kB
[ebuild N ] kde-base/akonadi-4.4.1 USE="(-aqua) -debug
(-kdeenablefinal) (-kdeprefix)" 0 kB
[ebuild N ] kde-base/kmail-4.4.1 USE="handbook kontact (-aqua)
-ayatana -debug (-kdeenablefinal) (-kdeprefix)" 0 kB
[nomerge ] kde-base/kde-meta-4.4.1 USE="nls semantic-desktop*
-accessibility (-aqua) (-kdeprefix)"
[nomerge ] kde-base/kdegraphics-meta-4.4.1 USE="(-aqua)
(-kdeprefix)"
[ebuild R ] kde-base/gwenview-4.4.1-r1 USE="handbook
semantic-desktop* (-aqua) -debug (-kdeenablefinal) (-kdeprefix) -kipi" 0 kB
[nomerge ] kde-base/kdepim-meta-4.4.1 USE="semantic-desktop (-aqua)
(-kdeprefix)"
[ebuild N ] kde-base/kdepim-runtime-4.4.1 USE="(-aqua) -debug
(-kdeenablefinal) (-kdeprefix)" 0 kB

I wonder if I have a link missing
What starts nepomuk ?
A few weeks ago on this list was a mail about switching on
indexing/semantic-desktop. I did this and all worked well until my update
to kde 4.4.1.
I thought I would check to see if semantic-desktop was turned on but for
the life of me I can't find that option anywhere.
Any thoughts?
This is driving me crazy, I'm sure the solution will be something simple.
Any help appreciated
regards
Paul

My problems are now resolved, after changing gcc and doing various updates
I finally emerged kdelibs again and then kdepim and kmail installed with
no problems.
Thanks to all who helped,
regards
Paul
