PS: A 2nd subject:

As an afterthought, I also have about 2 minutes of a dead system when I start 
kmail, which is apparently waiting on akonadi, which eventually fails of 
course because my system has a mysql installed that was already configured for 
mythtv usage when I upgraded, not installed, from F8 to F10.

I have asked several times for how to fix this, even posted the error log, but 
so far no solution has been offered.  I have used mysqladministrator to add 
akonadi as a client, using that as passwd too, and setup akonadi with matching 
passwds too, but that makes no diff that I can see.

If we cannot fix this using the normal setup procedures, then how can I rid 
kmail of this akonadi dependency, as it runs just fine ANAICT without it?

3rd subject, where is the default volume set for the startup and shutdown 
audio splash files, they are blowing out the windows on the neighbors houses.


Cheers, Gene
