Debug Output

Server version: 8.0.19
FreeBSD 11.3-RELEASE-p7

Due to the fact that akonadiconsole will not start, other programs are failing as well, such as korganizer.

I have attached the output of gdb. It is not much.

Sorry for the late reply:

Looking at:
mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed 

Can you manually connect to the database?

(In reply to Tobias C. Berner from comment #1)
I am not sure exactly what you are referring to. I don't think that a database was created. I see no sign that one was. I do have other MySQL databases that I connect to without any problems.

I'm going to close this one as "overcome by events" since it's a year old. I'm sorry we didn't have time and energy to chase it down -- I've had some **similar** issues in the past where the mysql wouldn't start for Akonadi. I forget what I did in such cases, though.

As a general debugging guide for this, let's take a belated look:

The log contains this:

org.kde.pim.akonadiserver: database server stopped unexpectedly
org.kde.pim.akonadiserver: Database process exited unexpectedly during initial connection!
org.kde.pim.akonadiserver: executable: "/usr/local/libexec/mysqld"
org.kde.pim.akonadiserver: arguments: ("--defaults-file=/home/gerard/.local/share/akonadi/mysql.conf", "--datadir=/home/gerard/.local/share/akonadi/db_data/", "--socket=/var/run/user/1001/akonadi/mysql.socket", "--pid-file=/var/run/user/1001/akonadi/mysql.pid")

This says that **mysqld** itself didn't start; the place to look for problems is therefore in the log of **that** program, not in akonadi. Looking at my machine today (where Akonadi doesn't work either, but for totally different reasons) I **do** see mysqld running:

10854  -  I     0:40.32 /usr/local/libexec/mysqld --defaults-file=/home/adridg/.local/share/akonadi/mysql.conf --datadir=/home/adridg/.local/share/akonadi/db_data/ --socket=/var/run/user/1001/akonadi/mysql.socket --pid-file=/var/run/user/1001/akonadi/mysql.pid

In the *datadir* you can find the error log from mysqld, so that would-have-been the place to look. With mysqld running, there's a socket you can connect to to debug the database; without it running, there's a log file.
