Looking in dmesg just now, no errors, sdd1 and sdd2 mounted just fine in rw
"mount" also shows them correctly in its output list.
Frustration with soprano is running rampant here. I have, in the ~/Mail
tree, about 4.3Gb of old emails. But the ~.kde/mumble/nepomuk tree where
soprano keeps its so called database contains 2 different *db files that
total just a hair under 16Gb! And nuking them so it has to rebuild them
doesn't even dot an i in the error messages, neither does a full re-install
of all kdepim, akanodi, nepomuk, and libsoprano stuff, the error remains
exactly as posted.
So I have started on a claws-mail install. But claws is mbox format
(mailfile) only, with no ability to process an mbox directory.
How is the best way to go about merging all those maildir files back into
an mbox format, or an 'MH' file so claws can then import it?
Thats question #1.
Question #2 Does claws-mail have a dbus port?
I ask as I have a script that watches /var/mail, and when a file has been
closed, tell kmail over the dbus, to go check the named mile file there.
Fetchmail, clamav, spamd, and procmail all look my incoming mail over &
handle the spam and virii content. Doing that in the background lets kmail
do what it does best. Handle the mail on this machine, sorting to folders
and showing it to me. The link between my mailwatcher and kmail is dbus.
