8.9. akonadi

Updated akonadi packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
Akonadi is a storage service for personal information management (PIM) data and metadata. The service provides unique desktop-wide object identification and retrieval, and functions as an extensible data storage for all PIM applications.

Bug Fix

Previously, the Akonadi service used the hard-coded ~/.local/share/akonadi socket directory. As a consequence, the Akonadi server did not start if the home directory was located on Andrew File System (AFS), which did not support the creation of UNIX sockets. With this update, the directory that holds the sockets has been changed to '/tmp/[username]-akonadi.[random]'. As a result, Akonadi starts on systems with the home directory on AFS as expected.
Users of akonadi are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
