I recently updated my laptop from 11.3 to suse 12.2 and am trying to run kOrganizer which is part of KDE but I open the error message and the 2 main errors have to do with mySQL and akonadi ... now I have all the same software and apps running fine on my Desktop computer ..

1. where do I find my error logs for akonadi and mysql
2. can or should I delete them
3 what should I edit
4 how should I edit
5 should any of these be running in root (as one of the error messages state)
6 what else should I look for

Akonadi Server Self-Test Report
===============================

Test 1: SUCCESS
--------

Database driver found.
Details: The QtSQL driver 'QMYSQL' is required by your current Akonadi server configuration and was found on your system.

File content of '/home/eric/.config/akonadi/akonadiserverrc':
[%General]
Driver=QMYSQL

[QMYSQL]
Name=akonadi
Host=
Options="UNIX_SOCKET=/home/eric/.local/share/akonadi/socket-linux-36ko.site/mysql.socket"
ServerPath=/usr/sbin/mysqld
StartServer=true

[Debug]
Tracer=null


Test 2: SUCCESS
--------

Akonadi is not running as root
Details: Akonadi is not running as a root/administrator user, which is the recommended setup for a secure system.

Test 3: SUCCESS
--------

MySQL server found.
Details: You have currently configured Akonadi to use the MySQL server '/usr/sbin/mysqld'.
Make sure you have the MySQL server installed, set the correct path and ensure you have the necessary read and execution rights on the server executable. The server executable is typically called 'mysqld'; its location varies depending on the distribution.

Test 4: SUCCESS
--------

MySQL server is executable.
Details: MySQL server found: /usr/sbin/mysqld Ver 5.5.28 for Linux on i686 (Source distribution)
