Hi Dotan,
Without knowing too much about this akonadi system, when I do an apt-cache 
search on akonadi, and check to see what I have installed, I have installed:


You probably have the mysql-server-core-5.1 installed already.  I would check 
on the other two though. I am not a big fan of this system. I would like to 
sync a number of google calendars with the one in Kontact, but it assumes your 
email at goog;e is If you host a mail domain with google it is 
useless. I just hope it gets better.
